People offer one another raw walnuts in Germany at the start of fall. I brought a few uneaten ones home and planted them in the garden beside my studio. The following year, after I had forgotten about them, some shoots came up that looked right. When I had forgotten again, I glanced there and saw half the hard walnut shell rolling around at the bottom of the stalk. I borrowed the strength of the giant zelkova tree to express the form of that bud.
