This sculpture began as a concept in my sketchbook last year. As a boy I spent a lot of time exploring at the river near our home, and would study found objects like stones, minerals, clam shells, bones and skulls. If I found them interesting, I would put them in a bucket, take them home to clean and place on display in my bedroom. This piece captures that curious gatherer's activity. Redwood is the main species, the bucket is Australian Brown Mallee burl, its handle is oak crotch grain, and the bottom piece that disguises the steel support rod is Australian White Top burl.
