Stalactite & Stalagmite

Cedar
72x14x14"
2009


A gift of several cedar knees from Florida's mangrove swamps provoked me to balance one on top of the other. Cedars behave more like onions than trees, and to carve their fibrous layers is almost impossible. To accentuate the precarious meeting in the center, I de-accentuated the top and bottom of the knees by burning them.
