Beech Coil

Material: Spalted Beech

30cm x 40cm

I was left with a much smaller log than I had originally intended to use, due to finding barbed wire embedded in this lovely section of spalted beech.

I wanted to make the piece look like it was made from rolled clay, as if building a coiled pot.

The final shape shows off the beauty of the timber, and has produced a slightly "springy" sculpture, which wobbles when touched.
