“Bark Disc”is a midwinter snow installation created in Hawarden Woods,North Wales in January 2013.A circle is carved out from a layer of snow spread across an oak tree using a small twig as a tool.The surrounding white contrast of snow highlights the beautiful textures and colours of the treetrunk within the circle.The artwork survived for two days in the wood,sustained by bitter overnight frosts and sheltered from the effects of any thaw from direct sunshine by the presence of surrounding trees.
