The Seedpod Pin by John Paul Miller comes relatively early (1962) in his career after his landmark rediscovery of the technique of granulation (1952–53). Here he contrasts hammered planes with granulated surfaces to emphasize texture and enhance the drama of discovery—a technique that would become a hallmark of his naturalistic compositions.
