Jerusalem-based industrial designer Sharon Sides has conceived “stumps” as her thesis project. Sides, explores the interplay between control and freedom providing an examination of when it is important to plan and when it is better to let things happen naturally. The process offers a different outlook on the tree trunk, which is normally associated with beams utilizing its length, focusing on the rings that appear on the actual end grain of the log. To achieve a replicate result of the end grain ring patterns, metal sections are scanned then acid etched to showcase the history of the tree as well as its age.
