This piece is one of the first ones I did using jute twine as a binder for the beaverwood versus rawhide. Rawhide is optimal however is very time consuming to procure and I am opposed to purchasing any at this time. Also recycled cedar fence boards make the surface. I guess all of my materials/mediums are recycled or reclaimed. Couple of reasons and they are, I’m cheap and its unique, interesting and one of a kind. The natural beauty of beaver chewed wood is fantastic in color,texture and history. Each piece is a celebration of nature and by placing together natural organic forms (beaverwood) I honor the animal for all of its amzaming attributes.
