    I visited Mr. Tobin’s studio in PA and it was incredible. His work is overwhelming when seen in person, in its “natural” environment.

    Prefer driftwood. This is not sustainable as wood boring insects now have less food

    The TROLL

    Oh my goodness! I did not know that roots were that large. I am sure that was a job to get it out of the ground in one piece.

  4. His Trinity Root is a landmark in lower Manhattan.

    I’d love to know more about these; what they’re made of, how he makes them, etc.

    Fabulous work!! By the way—his work is made of bronze or steel, not actual roots! (this to the person concerned about sustainability and wood boring insects)

    I love that! It’s so War of the Worlds!

    Fabulous! And also inspirational. I live not far from where a native New Zealand forest was logged for timber many years ago and there are still massive old stumps lying in the paddocks. I’ve often thought how wonderful they would look in the garden and seeing this Steve Tobin root sculpture has rekindled my desire to get hold of one.

    Now who do I know that has a large truck!
