Jessica Ward - Tethered Branches


2015, Found branches, thread, various woods, enamel paint and polypro. 18x16.5cm

A collection of branches are encased in a charming vintage glass bell jar.

The branches form a central square arboretum, with diagonal tethered threads emerging from their tips.

The threads help to further delineate the square motif of the outer cage, and unite the individual branches by a central axis point where multiple anchoring threads converge.

A small intimate sculpture, continuing the Bell Jar Series, the piece works beautifully in-the-round or can be nestled amongst collections of books or displayed upon a fireplace mantel.
