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.
