Both poles, thought, impulse, action, electrical. This work titled Transmission comes from a tree in my yard. I incorporated two logs sawn from the trunk section of a large cherry tree. One, using wedges and sledge hammer is split through, along the tree’s spiral grown pattern. Two, is inlaid with the symbol of a lightning bolt, formed with mahogany wood.
