QUENINGTON BEECH BRANCH HARP

QUENINGTON BEECH BRANCH HARP
I created a new work for Quenington 2016 sculpture show this year. I walked the ground and found this fabulous branch from a lower limb on a beech tree, this begged to be wired for sound.
After getting permission I set about drilling in to the wood and strung up a number of the curves on the branch. Again this sounded very good and was very subtle within the confines of the garden and the much larger garden sculptures that occupied the spaces.
