Sam & Zoe's Coffeehouse Sign

The objective of this original design was a simple and inviting wall-hanging for a coffee house setting.  For the letters, the woods (wenge, brown, and cocobolo, orange/red) and calligraphic styles were chosen as a metaphor for the names.  The cup (basswood) was given a very high gloss.  The style and figure of the wood (zebrano) chosen for the ampersand suggest rising vapor.  The background (highly figured birdseye maple) was chosen for its beauty, but is unbordered to keep the visual weight on the elements.  This piece measures 30" tall.
