wood & copper nails, 6"x 12"x 12",
This piece was a practice sketch for the large hanging piece called "Who Broke The World?" It was the first time I used the copper nails as a visual component in a piece.
This is the crotch from a big limb that I've rounded off, so if you turned it upside down it would fit in a large bowl. Then I started driving nails in the center of each of the 3 cut off parts of the crotch, (where the limbs join). From each center the nails spiral out to the edge covering the cut surface.
I see the copper nails as protecting, a healing of the surface.
