Woodwose and Jewells



This piece is no taller than 7" and is still 75% of the original tree...... a bonsai Woodwose!


It is a 12 year old sycamore tree!


It started life in Cardiff South Wales on a road called Talbot Street in a town house that has some magical memories.



It lived in a pot for 12 years until 2009 when it sadly died


The top / hair is actually the root ball with wire and glass beads



The base is Mahogany and the finish is Jacobean Wax.




I love this piece, we have over a decade of history together.
Hopefully many more years to go.
I am thinking of an appropriate name.....!
comments most welcome.
P.S. no runes but they can be applied once I have a name.

A very cool little piece. How about given it the Celtic name "Seicmar" which is Irish for sycamore?
