Off the coast of Rhode Island and considered one of the Nature Conservancy's "Last Great Places", 44% of Block Island is a dedicated nature preserve. The island has just over one thousand full-time residents but its population swells in the summer months, especially during their annual Fourth of July celebration.

Wood Charts are based on soundings and measurements from bathymetric and nautical charts. Each depth layer is laser-cut from sheets of Baltic birch and glued together "bread and butter" style to create the contours and shorelines of striking waterways. Select layers are hand-stained a rich blue-green color to discern water from land, and major byways are etched into the land. The whole work is framed in a custom, solid wood frame and protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic.
