DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. -- A Davidson County man uses twisted metal to create something beautiful.

Tony Underwood uses wires to create trees -- and he puts them on just about anything you can imagine.

"I'd tell somebody I'd put it on a cow patty if it's dry enough," he said.

Although the process may look random, Underwood uses a formula known as the Fibonacci sequence.

Underwood says the sequence is a reoccurring theme in nature and to him, his art is spiritual.

"Everybody asks when I do a windblown tree. It's the story of my life, Because of the storms that I go through, I stay grounded always, no matter what there is always something to hold on to."
