Item Description

This item is the size of a basketball and the print is on both sides.

Albert Eizenveldt, poet / cartoonist / museum curator at The Imagination Workshop has an amazing collection!  

Built from castaway useless pieces of trees (knots/galls/cankers) a vast "family" of inner children from the trees was created, many with poems &  stories. Most all are two-sided like the "eyes" sample shown and vary in size from inches to several feet.

I Am A Tree?s Clock

I am a clock and my ticking is going to stop-

my inside wheels are going slower & slower

and my hands with clenching fingers

will then write no more.

I hope but know what I?ll leave to remember,

what my clock?s tocking will show,

so as I sit here beside this giant Maple tree

aand pen the words you now read,

I sorta hope they stay in your mind,

and not have them shredded but stay rhymed,

or just swept up after being strewed on a floor.

See, my friend?

my inner child of wood here shown,

may or may not find a kindred home?

maybe they?ll join me in a pencil powered rite,

nestled in comfy soft clouds for us ever to write.

Item Special Note

THis item can be picked up from the gallery in New Hope, MN.
