Rooted Tree Bark
SOLDThis fantastical creation was designed by Brandon Holt. I was sent a sketch with a tree bark with old roots and a leaf shaped stem. I was given freedom to deviate from the sketch, but I tried not to do so very much. The plateaux is nice and knobbly and had a natural wave that I incorporated into the design of the shank. There are eight roots in all, including a central tap root where the nomenclature is located. I especially liked making the stem, which I think is an upgrade to the normal straight style of leaf stem for tree barks. It has been a fun and challanging three days in the making, and I am grateful for the opportunity to make a sketch come to life.
