Artist Statement

I recreate the tree’s microanatomy using copper wire and tin in the place of cellulose and lignin. In a unique process, copper wire is hand-molded and fused at high heat to form bronze. Then an alloy is applied to the surface, reheated, and worked like clay to create "bark". Mounted into rock it is finished with resin and/or patina.
