Kindling or Art?

Vernon Coleman

I passed an art gallery and saw that they were displaying several bits of dead tree. None had been changed in any way by human hand. Most of the items were simply branches about six feet long, with the usual complement of twigs. The cheapest small branch was priced at £145.

I was very distressed.

During the winter I collected, cut and burnt a pile of dead twigs that I thought was kindling. But it clearly wasn’t kindling. It was Art.

And I reckon I burnt around £250,000 worth of Art.
