It’s pretty obvious that faceting originates from tool making, where stones were dropped into a hot fire to make them split and flake to create a sharp edge. Later it became a lapidary technique.
I am starting to see my faceted kauri pieces as modular components that when multiplied create a whole. But why facet wood, why infiltrate a stone cutting technique onto a considerably softer material?
Different stones apparently belong to different crystal systems which are determined by their atomic structure.
Am I creating my own non-crystal system for my Kauri facets with their added curves and laminating?
