Foundry finds

Having found this bronze casting at a local thrift, I have to believe that its was made in a nearby foundry, of which there are many.

The overhead perspective and details of a timbered tree are wonderful. Its base and roots, like veins on the land’s surface and I love that both the bronze and its wood base are imperfectly shaped.

Its imperfections only add to its uniqueness.

And that’s a beautiful thing.

It’s also very weighty, so I use it as a doorstop.
