Jim Hodges’s artwork often reflects themes of love, life, and mortality. Wandering, a handcrafted, gnarled branch covered by moss, flakey bark, and dried-up berries, as well as a black widow spider and a bright red ladybug, was created through a labor-intensive process called lampworking. Each sculpture in the edition is unique. Hodges recalled his personal experiences and memories of collecting tree branches in the woods in order to create this piece.
