The inspiration for this piece came
from one of my favourite shapes: 
a fern ready to uncurl at the end of 
winter.

To be able to make into a piece of furniture however I had to turn it into a geometric shape that I could measure and define mathematically. I tried initially with a golden spiral, then an involute curve... several days later, with some modelling done on the
                         computer and some on  full scale drawings I finally hit on proportions that 
                                I was pleased with and that I was confident I could replicate.
