Squirrel Shoe: Nature’s Natural Gardener Spreading the Seeds, Needle felting wool, reindeer slipper, beach combed timber, locally foraged pine fronds and cones, 13″ x 17″ x 15″, 2018

Most new pine trees begin when the tiny seeds are blown about by the wind once released from the cone. although some are begun when birds and squirrels feed on the seeds and distribute them. This sculpture is a wearable shoe / slipper that is filled with pine cones that can be used to metaphorically spread the seeds for new pine trees to grow.
