Re-Birth…......From Pine Tree to Egg.
This is a piece of branch that I recovered from one of the wild fires here in Arizona. Both ends and all of one side had been burned.
It is from the area where my wife’s family always had their family reunion. It is fully regrown with grass and the trees are recovering. This branch was from one that did not recover. I brought it home and turned my version of the forest being re-born from the ashes.
It is 2 1/2 inch diam and 5 1/2 inch tall. Sanded to 400 grit then used the Beall buffing system.
I intentionally left part of the CHAR area to show the contrast from old to new. I also really like all the old cracks and voids.
Please leave all comments and critiques. Thank you for looking.
