In a private collection - John and Vicki Jordan's "Voice of a Beloved Tree"

Maple salvage timber from John and Vicki Jordan's beloved tree. Turned, carved and pierced. Base is driftwood found while beachcombing in Ormond Beach, Florida, just above Daytona Beach. I was given a piece of their tree, along with the very compelling story of its history, at the Hartford AAW Symposium. The inspiration for this piece is a heavily worn Left-Handed Welk shell (Busycon sinistrum Hollister, 1958), that I found at my favorite local beachcombing site, Matanzas Inlet, just south of St. Augustine, Florida.
