Taking Shape

 During a cycle ride  round Kew Gardens in my lunchbreak , I was  drawn to the sound of a chainsaw in the 'wood quarry' - David Nash in action! With some delicate manoevering of the Nifty Lift to get into the right position  it was amazing to see what precise work resulted from such a coarse tool.  
 So far my favourite work in progress is this split branch - no quite mirror images.
I don't think I'll be producing any 'David Nash' quilts in the way I did from the Henry Moore exhibition at Kew but it's certainly making me look at trees in a  different way
There were several dead trees in Syon Park that caught my eye.
