I use creative geometry to bring new life to old traditions of "magic woodcarving", i.e. the art of carving a piece of wood into parts that are loose, but cannot be separated. Traditional examples are wooden chains and balls in cages, as seen in such items as Welsh love spoons and European wool winders.

The traditional ball in cage theme is combined with a classical motif from renaissance art and inspiration from Japanese netsuke carvings. The cage is a rhombic dodecahedral edge frame.
