Spalted Persimmon Sculpture
Creating floral sculptures from various wood across the world, the artist used spalted persimmon. Spalting (The colorations and patterning created by the growth of fungus in wood) occurs as a tree breaks down. Persimmon is a woodworker's choice due to the very quick process compared to other hard dense woods. This is due to the high degree of sugars in the wood itself.
