Cork is a wood product, though little woodworking went into this piece… I just love to use recyclable materials found in the trash. Cork Woman was born second in a series of burnable effigies of natural materials. I was inspired one day and made her in 9 hours with toothpicks, 325 corks, hemp twine, and a simple 3 piece oak structure inside.
Cork woman was supposed to be burned this last summer at a spiritual retreat, but she turned out so beautiful that no one wanted to burn her. So, she lives on… and I have learned to not put as much creative energy into something meant to be burned. ~ e
