Piece of wood

This piece of wood I found in a forrest of Utrecht in the Netherlands. It came from a tree that was hitten by lightning, rotten and eaten by insects. I took it home, this beautiful poor thing and I build a plaster mold around it. After pouring the clay, the ceramic version was born. As the original continues to rotten, the ceramic brother will last. Like a picture of a moment, the state of the wood is captured.
