Mobius inspired 3d logo/ leaf sculpture

Leaf scuplture

This object is halfway between being my 3 dimensional logo and a small sculpture. Form is inspired by Mobius strip. When I started sculpting reference model from clay, I had spent some hours trying to figure out how to transform a flat, graphic symbol into 3d real world. The best way to go about, so it seemed, was to take two slightly crumpled cherry  leaves and staple them together :) They served me as a model for my sculpture. Piece is handmade from red mahogany and polished to velvet smoothness. Inside I first planned to encase a piece of amber, but decided to use glass ball that was just the right colour.
