Everybody's Day artist: Ynot to show creations

Wire art uses natural elements

Tony Underwood confesses he is a bit backward, at least his business name — ynot. And, he’s a bit twisted. The artist creates his craft with a twist of wire that evolves into one-of-a-kind art, most of it trees.

His Facebook page Ynot Imagine displays his talent with detail from a witches’ house to sculptured trees in frames or attached to a natural element such as a  rock.

Trees have captured his imagination. Many of his postings reflect an ethereal approach to his art: “If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.” — Confucius

This is Underwood’s first showing at Everybody’s Day and he will have a mix of art which consists mostly of  wire tree sculptures which use natural elements and up-cycling. 

“I also create whimsical items like fairy houses, wind chimes.  I do custom pieces as well, where cost, size, wire type and color, rock, moss can be chosen.  No two pieces are ever exactly the same.

“I was born and raised in Thomasville and I'm really excited to be part of Everybody's Day this year.
