Bones of oak.
This sculpture tree is made from the bones of oak.
The bones of the oak is where branches have weathered and aged so the the bark and the sap wood has disintergrated leaving only the heart wood of the oak, therefore creating beautiful shapes that will last a lifetime.
This idea came to me while making the smaller jewellery trees, i thought to myself why not make a huge one and put some carvings on and around it, which i think works really well!
As far as i know this is a unique idea that i've created. These sculptures can be dismantled and erected by myself, so if you haven't got an old dead tree in the garden why not commission yourself one, with your choice of carvings.
