I took this photo while the maintenance men were bolting the tree to the brick wall. A beautiful moment in the tree's life. 2012.
Customers enjoying the tree's company prior to the hanging of the glass pieces. 2012.
Re-purposed coat hanger, wire, bicycle tire rims, re-bar. 2011-2012.
This piece was commissioned by Goodwill Industries of Wisconsin to commemorate financial donors of their non-profit cafe. The glass pieces were made by volunteers, under my instruction, and each one represents a financial donor. The tree is permanently displayed the Harmony Cafe in Appleton WI.
After it's third birthday, the tree was moved to Goodwill's campus in Menasha WI. This is the beginning of the tree's regrowth.
