Description
A tall sculptural form typical of the artist's exploration of non-functional shapes which he has always made concurrently with more utilitarian forms. This work develops from a vase-like base to 'branches' and 'leaves' of a tree. The surface is highly decorated with a variety of patterns and drawings typical of the artist's recent work.
