Red Mallee Burl
2014

Featured in TREES+ Exhibition
Bungendore Wood Works
October 31 - December 6, 2015

The core of the exhibition was 14 Trees, my favourite work. I started making these particular Trees with help from my good young friend, Adam Doran from Ireland. Without his help, my hands might not have survived the brutally hard Red Mallee burl these trees are made from. It takes at least a year to go from a wet burl to a finished Tree, as the dry burls are impossible to carve, while rushing the drying process causes them to crack. I was recently interviewed by Australian Wood Review about this process, so if you want to hear me talking about it and see inside my messy workshop, go to: http://admin.woodreview.com.au/
