A couple of pieces of redwood root. The rotten parts were stripped away with a wire brush. The piece in the back has been sanded and mounted to stone. The foreground piece has not yet been sanded smooth, just brushed with mineral oil. It will end up the lighter red color the other piece has. Have not decided how I am going to use it yet. Perhaps as a free-standing found object sculpture or as a pedestal to a larger piece. The grain in this piece is really interesting. It goes round and round in a tight spiral instead of lengthwise.
