Sculpture - Childer Coppice I

This is a small sculpture from a piece of coppiced hazel I picked up whilst doing some coppice work  for Doug Joiner at Childer Wood, Herefordshire. Childer Wood is the base for Doug's Heavy Horse Logging business.

The sculpture is about the size of a cantaloup melon. I loved the natural shape of the hazel and so wrapped and tacked the small hazel block with layers of naturally dyed handmade felt I'd designed to accentuate the swirls of the wood.
