"Waldstücke" are door harps with the characteristics of the forest, here mainly bark.
But there are many more opportunities to "bring over" the forest
...such as crotches, adhesions and injuries of the stem, which the tree has coped with and which change his wood in color and form.
So now I have a chestnut stem with a woodpecker hole. It is not yet sawn into boards. It has only a single woodpecker nested in the tree - as is now so common times for woodpeckers. And so is there even one single piece of a door harp with this unique feature.
Moss is of course a variant. However, it is represented only in the root zone of the trees, and you have to give precise instructions for wood cutting to get some of it. And it is an extremely delicate matter, to work the moss patches into the finished piece, because Moss is - like bark - a difficult material.
All of these materials that belong to the outer skin of the tree, and are protection - and as just like his jewelry - let us immediately associate the forest.
And that is the meaning and purpose of my work on this series : Wild-life? Forest Life!
