wood & copper pipe, 78"x 28"x 6"
Often I come up with an idea and then it may take months or years to find the right piece of wood to make the piece come alive.
This sculpture started with an old piece of copper pipe that I put a branched piece of wood into.Then I could not find another branched piece that fit as snugly as the first. I set it aside to work on another sculpture, but often checked on other pieces of wood to see if one might fit.. Then after a year or so I found the right one. I chiseled both pieces of wood lightly so they slid down into the pipe and then used a double ended lag screw to hook the two pieces of wood together with the copper pipe in between them.
