Gallaccio found the original piece of wood in a hedgerow in Norfolk.

She liked the idea that this wild, unkempt and uncared-for hawthorn could be given a new life through the direct burn-out casting process, and made into something delicate, elaborate and beautiful. The silver haws at the end of each branch were made with the help of a jeweller. Gallaccio likes the idea that the berries will tarnish making the work change subtly over time.
