Pollarding Willows at Dove Studios

There is a project afoot at Dove Studios with Bron Bradshaw, a project using pollarded crack willow.
I have been brought in to create some sound instruments out of or with the crack willow.  A plan is gestating to create something as yet unknown with the live trees, so I pollarded with the magnificent help of Laurie, leaving some branches to grow and possibly become supports to whatever I might make, these may be cut down yet in July (next phase) or left, the offcuts might become hanging beating elements ala a xylophone  or the living pieces elements of an aeolian harp. so watch this pace and see what could happen.
