Gum Tree, Northern Territory
This amazing burl was discovered in the far reaches of the Northern Territory, half - way along a Gum tree.
As I carved Walnut many holes appeared which added to its very unique shape. This also made it very tricky to sand.
Burls are normally formed by a virus fasciation, which causes radical cell distortion and the crazy grain. However the burl is actually an enlarged knot.
Walnut is a one of a kind sculpture, which has been hand carved to accentuate its natural shape and finished with a clear oil to bring out its natural colour.
The tree will live forever in this stand-alone piece. Please respect, love and enjoy its beauty.
