Sandblasted Redshank Tree

Here is a spectacular tree sculpted out of Sandblasted Redshank Branches (both the poles and the forks) for Heidi's Restaurant in Minneapolis, MN. Interior design and project concept was by Jim Smart of Smart Associates (contact), and the actual building and sculpting of the piece was by Anna Cerelia Battistini (contact) and Matt Horth. Ms. Battistini reports that the density of the branches made them a bit difficult to work with, but she was thrilled with the material and its beauty, particularly the way the sandblasted surface glows in the spot lighting. I couldn't agree more!
