The things I find....

Check out the stick in the photo....Do you see the rock that is embedded in it? Fray and I were visiting my Aunt when we decided to take a walnut tree root mass home with us. The walnut tree had died, had fallen over and was in the way so my Aunt was glad to get rid of it....but it meant that we had to cut the trunk off the tree before it would fit in the truck bed.

In the process of sawing the trunk off (Imagine lumberjack Fray!) I had picked up a piece of the root mass that had fallen off. I noticed it was awefully heavy for its size when I realized that in the process of growing the roots had "grabbed" onto a rock. It looks like a bird claw grasping a rock to me. I think its super cool.

Below is a slideshow featuring two antique Indonesian wood carvings from Bo Tree Source. We custom built and finished the gallery stands they are mounted on. The finish I did on the "wood curl" stand is just so sexy! Check out the detail shot.

***Notice the white “specks” in the photos with Fran working on the stand. That was falling ash from the local San Bernardino fires. Needless to say we wore dust masks the whole night. When we left the studio at 3am the ash fall was so thick it was like driving through a dense fog.
