Part of The Dogwood Barks series - studies of a poodle-bush.
SCRATCHWOOD is one of five plates in the 'Dogwood Barks' series of etchings. It is a bush - who is a dog ... or the other way round. If you look closely you can see it is scratching its ear with its hind leg (or branch).
Sioban has made several pieces of sculpture of Tree People. It only seemed fair that they should have pets - just as the trees have little bushes who dance around them to keep them cheerful. The Dogwood Barks were inspired by an eccentric and unkempt little Poodle called Vicky.
