This is a prototype/marquette for pieces that I have had in my sketch book for some time now.
Wanting to continue with my current theme I decided to scorch the main form to bring out the grain and to add bamboo which has been tied with copper wire.
The base is not the final material and on future pieces be altered for stone.
Numerous other forms/ideas based on this are being produced some of which will be for the Arts Trail that I am taking part in ast the end of May.
There were various problem photographing this piece but I have managed to get a resasonable result.
The next one will probably be much taller. and some will be squater and wider.
Here is a close up of the top detail.
