Carnelian Honey Mesquite- Micro Tree Sculpture
I decided to challenge myself to make a micro tree. And then I made a bunch, because it was so much fun!
Here is a lovely little tree styled after the Honey Mesquite tree, which is a Texas native. This micro tree is made of a gorgeous piece of agatized petrified wood and raw copper, with beautiful carnelian "leaves."
The petrified wood was self collected in Spring Creek, a lovely little creek that runs through Harris County, Texas.
The measurements are:
Sculpture: 1.5 inches tall
Petrified wood base: 1.5 inches wide x 1.125 inches deep x .5 inch tall
Tree: 1inch tall
