The latest Bottle Tree (Thank You, Ruth!) to emerge from Fossil Forge has a fantastic new setting. The sculpture perches on a deck overlooking the skyline of Kansas City. Even on a hazy afternoon, the blue bottles glisten against the background. The crest of this Bottle Tree is adorned with a castoff fence finial and some hand-wrought tendrils of steel. These are welded to a chunky gear from an old Ford. Set into a bucket of concrete, this tree should stand tall in the Midwest weather.
