The two, wall-mounted sculptural works were commissioned by School Within School (SWS) at Goding Elementary School in Washington DC. The PK3-5th grade school is Reggio Emilia inspired, and the works are based on the underside of mushrooms.

Medium: Baltic Birch Plywood, Poplar, Wood Stain

Dimensions: (01) H 82.5″ x W 94″ x D 6.75″
Dimensions: (02) H 82″ x W 90″ x D 6″


The client requested wall-based work made from natural materials, with a focus on materiality. Because children interact with the work, the pieces are durable and resistant to damage.
