Roger Atkins creates organic yet manipulated wooden sculpture using a process is called stack laminating, or creating form by layering "wafers" of wood together. Atkins has learned from the material he uses by becoming more aware of the fragility of the material and the necessity for meticulous attention to keep the wood "wafers" flush and smooth.
