70. Robert Wofford

Keizer, Oregon


The intent of my display is to honor Anne Spencer, the initial artist of both trees within the display. I had the honor of studying with Anne over the course of a few years prior to her death. When I acquired the Elm from Anne she asked that I make it available for display when able to as it has been the source tree for many cuttings over the years and there are many Corkbark Elms in the Pacific Northwest that originated from this tree. Both trees are styled in a more traditional Japanese fashion and my vision has been to continue to build refinement on the great structure that was set early in the development.
