Picea glauca

In 2001 I went to a remote corner of northern BC with a plan.
I wanted to see If I could make a work of art with only my hands
and what I found around me nothing else. 
What I found were spruce cones, thousands of them.
I spent three weeks gathering and carefully placing cones
around five White Spruce trees.

On one of my days off I hiked to the Llewellyn Glacier.
The way the ice flowed through the valleys influenced the way
that I arranged the cones streaming around the trees. 

When it was finished,
I gathered some people around to view it,
documented it, then left it for the squirrels.
