Regenerative agriculture - roots are tools

Our Myer lemon tree has been struggling all fall, as a result I now have a new root. 

 What is left of my diseased tree.

I will cast it in bronze and turn it into a second tool for my regenerative agriculture project “roots are tools.” First, I need to make sure that my first piece works out like I have imagined it. Unfortunately, I have been unable to pour the bronze for the piece.


It is taking awhile to get all of the kinks worked out of the MFAH Glassell Studio School Foundry. As a result, I have not poured any pieces this fall. I am anxious to pour my root. I would like to know if my creative sprueing system works. If it works, this Myer lemon root will make a great tool.
