Carved cherry. This piece was made in 2012 during a Wingate Artist-in-residency at SUNY Purchase. The log for this piece came from a tree that fell on campus during hurricane Sandy. It is rare that I get to work with a whole tree, typically I get logs with all the limbs cut off. The form of this piece was suggested by the way the tree grew and the limbs split from the main trunk. For the sake of stability a plate steel base has been added to the piece. This piece is available.
