Fiddlesticks for Amazing Spaces at Dove Studio

In april I pollarded the willow trees, from the pollarded sticks I have created 49 Fiddlesticks each one with a single nylon string and two bridges.  These I have hung in the pollarded willows like an autumn fruit suspended from the branches, each fiddlestick can be taken down from the branches (picked) and then played, either plucked or bowed with a violin bow, the player places their ear to the wood of the Fiddlestick to hear the sound that only they can hear.
