Sculpture

In 2016 Ben had the opportunity to salvage walnut trees from a 70-year-old orchard in the Adelaide district of Paso Robles, California. The trees had reached their life span and needed to be removed so that the property could be replanted as a vineyard. After the trees were removed, the owner burned the remaining branches and root balls. The fire left behind a pile of beautiful, fire-sculpted figures. Ben couldn't help but bring them home and start shaping them. The result: the Adelaide Series. Please contact Ben for pricing and details.
