Pine on Manzanita by Rhed-Dawg Pine on Manzanita by Rhed-Dawg
This is my latest project for the art festival that is on the 11th and 12th of this month. It's a copper pine on a piece of polished Manzanita, the tree is 12 inches tall. Not the best photo, sorry about that.

really pretty tree
too much flash on the picture, sunlight is better>>> or put up two lights (normal yellow light bulb and white lightbulb)

I just found out Manzanita ( a name I grew up hearing as a child) & the taller Madrona tree from up North are of the same family group. The color of the wood is just lovely. Would make a beautiful walking stick.

Do you make the branches 1st & then attach/ coil the to the trunk part? Don't mind me I just like understanding how things are done even if I am not ever going to attempt to do it myself.

I love Madrone trees they are gorgeous. They grow a lot bigger then Manzanita.
I did make the branches first, each group of needles is made then put together to form branches then twisted to make the trunk of the tree. It really is a lot of work, but I do enjoy making them.
