Triple Scoop! Haverford 2019

In late 2018 I was contacted to create a carving from a grand white oak trunk on Trout Run in Haverford, a leafy suburb of Philadelphia.  This tree and one other majestic oak on the property had been badly damaged in a micro burst, a very intense, localized storm.  Instead of taking both trees down, the home owners left one trunk standing.  I was asked to carve it into an ice cream cone to commemorate a past family business, Potts Ice Cream.
