did you ever do an art piece where the materials just spoke to you and demanded to have their way? in this case i've had some horse chestnut branches in my workshop for years which i use for handles n some of the boxes i made. i was cleaning some things down there this weekend and happened upon them and they told me they wanted their ends dipped in black paint and then wrapped in red thread

 during the thread wrapping process i inserted a wooden sphere i had which has a really interesting grain pattern.

i am entitling this piece "Seed"

one part of the piece i like is that is rests on just 3 points and has a dynamic arch to the underside
