This item is the size of a basketball and the print is on both sides.
Albert Eizenveldt, poet / cartoonist / museum curator at The Imagination Workshop has an amazing collection!
Built from castaway useless pieces of trees (knots/galls/cankers) a vast "family" of inner children from the trees was created, many with poems & stories. Most all are two-sided like the "eyes" sample shown and vary in size from inches to several feet.
I Am A Tree’s Clock
I am a clock and my ticking is going to stop-
my inside wheels are going slower & slower
and my hands with clenching fingers
will then write no more.
I hope but know what I’ll leave to remember,
what my clock’s tocking will show,
so as I sit here beside this giant Maple tree
aand pen the words you now read,
I sorta hope they stay in your mind,
and not have them shredded but stay rhymed,
or just swept up after being strewed on a floor.
See, my friend…
my inner child of wood here shown,
may or may not find a kindred home…
maybe they’ll join me in a pencil powered rite,
nestled in comfy soft clouds for us ever to write.
THis item can be picked up from the gallery in New Hope, MN.
