Wedding Band by Bruce Edmundson

Wedding Band is an example of trying to illustrate a very human concept  – marriage – that uses an elemental natural shape – the circle – with a rare  natural product, the burl.  The burl is particularly suited as the whorls of the bird’s eye grain reflect the circular design.  The live-edge, which challenges the smooth round man made ring, the gap where the circle is incomplete, and the imperfections inherent in live-edge sculpture, reflect the tension and challenges inherent in the very human need to couple and join in marriage.  – Bruce Edmundson
