Angles of perspective and three-dimensional shapes are always very interesting to me.  #Ckwns  is based upon Fibonacci’s number sequence.  The 3D cubes in this design are the measurements of his sequence – 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13.  These numbers appear in random places within the design, some are flat, while others are relief made from paper mache.  Brass lengths cut to the correct number lengths adorn the surface creating a path to the wooden painted container.
