Yiannis Maramathas

Common Hornbeam – Carpinus betulus  

Hornbeam and ironwood are both names referring to the strong wood of the Common Hornbeam tree which rarely cracks or splits. Its pale timber endures and carries the load. This quality was an important source of inspiration and this piece makes an attempt to shed light on a sound experience from the inside.
