Corylus americana: model

Materials: wire, resin, plywood

This wire model of a grouping of Corylus americana (American hazelnut) was created as part of an intensive study of the plant, including characteristics, uses, and cultivation. Roots were set in clear resin, and the model was mounted on a plywood base. The photo of the hazelnut plant was taken at the Chicago Botanic Garden during a reseach visit to study the form of a live specimen.
