The individual elements of split cedar all display a unique delicate surface where the split line follows the Cambium Layer. When placed together the delicate individual surfaces are transformed into an untamed sculptural panel, where deep shadows, highlights and variable cedar colours evoke images of the landscape.
The Cambium Layer is a delicate layer of living cells within a tree located just inside the bark. During the growing season, the Cambium produces new inner bark (Phloem), new sapwood (Xylem) or new cambium cells. This activity increases the size of the trunk, branches and roots and produces the characteristic annual growth rings.
