As I move into experimenting with sculpture I need to find the right material for my needs. Being environmentally aware I wanted to find a wood that is fast growing and has good working characteristics. Enter the Paulownia tree. I found out about Paulownia through surfing (big surprise) because that is what they make alaia boards out of. The wood is soft and resists warping and moister. As a material for making art that about covers all the bases. I went ahead and ordered some to experiment with. Stay tuned.
