The Gift by Bruce Edmundson

This piece was from a blow down maple on Salt Spring Island that was about to become firewood before a very gracious lady offered it to me. It was a gift that has given me several sculptures. While carving this it brought to mind those gifts you get that you don’t know what they are, or how important, or valuable until some time afterwards.   It takes a bit of exploration amongst the swirls and waves, the bird’s eye and the live edge to get to where this piece takes you, which is the joy and humanity of giving. – Bruce Edmundson
