Sculptured display

This project was designed and developed for the Erickson Center for the Arts located in Curtis Michigan.

The tree was designed to hold four levels of donor nameplates.

The wood used was flame birch. This type of wood was selected because of the figure which when positioned at certain angles resembles the groups of needles on a spruce tree branch.

The tree was all hand carved and sculptured with gouges and various other tools for smoothing.
