MOVE OVER MANZANITA! RUSTIC SUMAC ROOT IS HERE TO STAY! Cut from an uprooted fallen staghorn sumac tree, this beautiful piece of fibrous natural root still retains its rustic bark. My desert-hued stone base was found lying in the creek below the thicket where this sumac once stood.

I washed the sumac root and stone, baking the root in the oven until very hot to the touch. I always like to make sure that the wood is bug-free. Strong epoxy was used to adhere the wood to the stone, then I sprayed my creation with several coats of non-yellowing matte sealer. Self-adhesive felt was also added to the bottom of the stone to prevent any surface scratching.

Measuring the expanse of wood, my creation measures 21" in length, 8" wide, and is 19" in height at its highest point. This wonderful piece would add natural interest to any area of your home. Take a step back and ENJOY the UNEARTHED BEAUTY of mother nature!

CHECK IT OUT! Some interesting details about STAGHORN SUMAC:
Not to be confused with poisonous sumac, the staghorn sumac is a deciduous shrub/tree belonging to the Cashew family, and is native to eastern North America. The shrubs/trees can grow under a wide array of conditions, most often found in dry poor soil where other plants cannot survive.

The shrub flowers from May through July and it's clusters of red berries ripen from June to September, with the foliage turning a brilliant red in autumn. Sumac berries are collected, washed and soaked in cold water, strained, and made into a refreshing pink lemonade. The bark can be used as an astringent and the leaves are also edible. Native American Indians would smoke the leaves and berries of the plant mixed with tobacco and other herbs.

All parts of the staghorn sumac, except the roots (and this is where I come in...LOL!), can be used as a natural dye or can be added to other dye baths to improve light fastness.
