The Tree That Binds

Dimensions: 30h x 30w x 3d   
Materials: Alder, Birch, found branch
Finish: Latex satin paint, vinegar and steel wool, Osmo PolyX
Notes:  This piece is based on a stick I found while camping in Stanley, Idaho that had three pieces of lichen attached to it- a family. The branch in this piece was found after a long hike on an Oregon mountain. After I thought I had found the perfect branch at the top of a very tall mountain, I very carefully carried it all the way down the mountain. But, I found the branch I used in front of my car door in the trail head parking lot. This branch was more perfect.
