One of the first art pieces that I made, the bush banjo was inspired by the beautiful native bushland we have on our property. Instruments are made from timber, i.e. trees, so I just took it one step closer to the source and made this instrument from a fallen branch. The banjo body was from an old bodhran I had made a very long time ago. The rough, rustic nature of this piece is reminiscent of Australia’s pioneering era, where an instrument like this would fit in perfectly.
