Hickory in Blue Base
Made using 24, 26, 28 galvanized steel wires.17"H x 18"W x 16"D. This tree sculpture has a solid trunk and large root system necessary to support the many upper branches. An antique clay brick fragment is set in among the roots for added color and texture. The roots are bonded in sea sand mixed with pebbles then permanently planted in a rectangular glazed blue container. The sea sand mixture is painted in several layers of yellow, green and white India ink. The colors and texture of this mixture gives the feel and appearance of moss covered earth. All the colors used are "light fast" and will not fade.
