MAD will be open on Mon, May 6.

In the Studio with Ursula von Rydingsvard

Ursula von Rydingsvard is renown for her powerful, monumental cedar sculptures, Here, she explains the labor-intensive, intuitive process for the 2011 Oddychająca, for which she manipulated a field of flat 2-by-4-foot beams into an organic form that gently curves out into space. 

Oddychająca was included in the 2013 exhibition Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design.
