Collectibles--General (Modern)/insulator enveloped in roots
Years ago in Seattle I read about an insulator grown into tree roots somewhere around Winchester, Kentucky and was struck by it as a potent metaphor of solar rootedness. This lparticular find was written up during the early days of collecting in one of the journals I believe. Bob, if you can help me find my way back to some good info on this, I'd be trully grateful.
Hi Jerry --
There are a number of cases where insulators have been embedded into trees or their root systems. The Crown Jewels of the Wire Magazine is the primary insulator periodical and there are a couple references to this. Here is a rare insulator embedded into a tree (look about half way down the page):
Also the insulators.info site has good data:
I remember some instances of insulators embedded into tree roots as well but was unable to find any web references. Hope these are of assistance.
