I could crop the photo but then you wouldn't get the wrinkled bedsheet/temporary tablecloth.
Here you can see a family of pieces with their related styles. It started with this book on wooden buildings and this picture of curving shingles really caught my eye. So I started carving my pieces based on it. I first wrote about it in Nov 2009 in the post called Carving Clay.
In this grouping below you can see how I started with the curves going horizontally, then vertically. The vertical lines are easier to carve but I like the white piece best. You can really feel the ebb and flow of the lines.
A close up of the texture: Not a big fan of the color but love how it shows up the texture.
