This sculpture echos the beauty of the Canadian landscape. The oak cut-steel tree made by the artist and "clinging" to a cedar burl, and then mounted on solid walnut is a one-of-a-kind piece. This sculpture would make an amazing wedding, birthday or anniversary gift for nature-lovers, cottagers or anyone who loves the reminder of windswept trees. Delicate, yet depicting the mighty oak tree, and the connection of trees, this piece will certainly add to, or start, an outstanding art collection.
Size: 16 1/2" tall. Due to the size and weight of this piece it is only available at Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge, ON, or contact Cedar Lake for shipping costs and arrangements.
