Width: 11 inches

Made from an old-growth, hand-salvaged Sitka Spruce stump from the Tongass National Forest in Sitka, Alaska.
I painstakingly sharpened and re-sharpened my tools a thousand times to create this sculpted piece to show how the ancient tree's roots grew completely around a good-sized rock.
The vessel is, of course, meant to display, to observe, to consider, and to talk about with friends.
