Methuselah  (first image) Upon seeing an image of the ancient Bristlecone Pine from the Sierra Nevadas, I was enamored by the contortions and textures of these amazing trees with their twisted, gnarly limbs, supported by a short thick trunk lacking most of its bark. I was driven to construct my own fiber rendition of these wind-swept wonders of living and dead wood, entwined through the centuries, creating these masterworks of nature. Assembling the many elements of the trunk, and hand-pleating fabric for the roots required more than 1800 hours.
