The Radiant Tree


Did you know that trees communicate with other trees with their roots?  I hope this desert tree finds some friends.


The mount is made from blue stain pine.  Its milled locally in the Rocky Mountains.  The tree has died prematurely due to a virus spread by beetles.  It has an unusual blue gray stains.


The black lines are actually wood burns that have a naturally occuring fractal design.  The technique is called Lichtenburg Wood Burning.  I sent 12,000 volts of electricity through wood planks!


The tree was constructed by Repoussé ,  a sheet metal art technique.  Copper sheeting was cut,  pounded and incised to create the shape of the tree.  I used solder to create its bark texture.  I then colored the bark was by metal plating and patinas.
