Only Mother Nature Could Do This....
« on: October 18, 2014, 07:06:28 PM »

   One of my buddies while at the beach prospecting came across this and had to bring it home for me. And I'm glad he did. It's a  piece of cedar root driftwood in the shape of a mallard duck.   it is so cool that I am still sorting glass and stones for this one.  I figure a huge piece of Pet wood for a base, A lot of copper marsh grass and colorful stained glass and agate wings Making the duck looking t be setting for flight.  All this is just the base for a simply huge agate shade, say 18 inches or so. This is what I needed to chill the boredom.  But to do this right. It will probably take till Christmas to get done. So look out for more photos.

Very nice, lucky dude. I had one the shape of a swimming duck but when I went minimalist I had to abandon it. That sucked.
