Accidental Seascapes #1 & #2

accidental seascape

Accidental Seascapes #1 and #2, 45″ x 11.5″ each, plywood, WD-40, cement-all.

Removing the forms from my Deep Deck mold, I was surprised and delighted to find two accidental seascapes emerge on the plywood sides that were in contact with the curing concrete. I sprayed the boards with WD-40 as a release agent before making a total of six successive pours, and the process and chemical reaction left a beautiful range of marks and colors, penetrating deep into the wood fibers.
