I love unique things and need that to come across in my art so not just any piece of driftwood or root system will do. Scouring shorelines, while fishing and being surrounded by nature, is so exciting for me because I know that my favorite creative outlet has begun another journey. Once home, the pieces are scrubbed and dried. Each piece must be prepared so that it sits properly on a flat surface. Some pieces are destined to become wall sconces while some are more suitable for table top lamps and others, chandeliers.
