William Hunter, Even Through Midnight I Can See Diamonds, 1995, ebony, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1995, William Hunter, Gift of Fleur and Charles Bresler in honor of Kenneth R. Trapp, curator-in-charge of the Renwick Gallery (1995--2003), 2003.60.25
This piece plays on the darkness of its material by allowing only small areas of light to penetrate. The linear carvings sweep around the vessel so that when you look through the piece, small diamonds of light stand out against the wood.
Luce Object Quote"I . . . explore the illusion of motion, add gesture or refine line while creating new life in the pieces." William Hunter, Catalog, del Mano Gallery, 2001
