Brendan takes his natural canvas from logs with splits, pieces from farm wind rows, and reclaimed timber.

A treasure hunt has been fashioned among the sculptures, which has been created as a way for kids to enjoy the natural raw space with their parents and interact with the art. The hidden shipwrecked ‘treasure’ can even be located on Google Earth before you arrive.
