Art is not what you see but what you make others see.
A downed tree has not yet ended his story, there are plenty more chapters. The wood I use for my driftwood sculptures predominantly comes from New Zealand's south island. The coast there is densely forested and when a tree falls, is struck by lightning or landslide occurs then the chances are that, that tree will find it’s way down the fast flowing rivers that lead to the ocean. As the West Coast is known for its huge waves and frequent storms, any log (no matter the size) that has found its way into the ocean will soon find itself being thrown back onto the beach just as quickly.
Red Cedar, Beech and other indigenous trees become driftwood, brought over to the UK from New Zealand and this is when I begin making the next chapter in the woods' story.
