Dark collected these burls, stripped off the bark and stored them for a number of years to allow these dense burls to dry out. His original intent was to fill the natural cracks, sand smooth and paint the burls in a solid colour. However after spending time repairing the cracking in the dried burls he found a beauty in the repair. He was reminded of the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery Kintsugi. The philosophy that treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than disguising the repair.
