Simply on Earth

Simply on the earth

This is another from my raft series. I used pieces of nature that I find in my walks. I am very conscious of nature’s ecology so only use pieces that are in logged areas. The works include mosses, lichen, twigs, feathers and other little pieces from the woods. I mounted the bundle on a raft of found wood and then tied around the piece with vines and raveled twine. I added a string of stone gems and a tiny white stag deer that I once found floating in the ocean. I added the text… simply on the earth…on to the bottom. The piece is easily displayed with a copper wine hanger on the back. It is 8 inches tall, 3 inches wide at the base and the branches flare out at the middle to 8 inches wide.
