Inspired by the look of a water leaf, this sculpture is made of a single piece of willow wood and has been electrified using 10,000 volts. The very detailed dendrite pattern show witness to the electrons as they pursue a connective path through the wood's surface.  The base is solid cast iron. 

21 1/4" tall, 8 1/2" wide
