Ron Oneal Custom Design Bottle Trees
Hello my name is Ron Oneal an African American man, mesmerized by the thought of the bottle tree. I read up on the bottle tree only to find that the purpose of the tree is to capture evil spirits which have held up many Americans that have been destined to overcome different trials within their lives. The bottle tree to me, represents the different struggles that one may face within their life. Within my trees you can find a story about how we as people have overcome some of life's greatest struggles.
I was born in a small town in Alabama called Uriah, which is home to the cotton ginss and many struggles. My ancestors were brought to America on slave ships and have overcome the hardships of slavery to become part of America. I want to make my mark in America by giving back to those people that may not understand. My trees are being used to create a movement to teach others how to love and overcome the violence, the hate, as well as the truth about who we are as Americans. With each unique and different ethnic background we have all built this country together.
My trees will tell your own story as to how one has overcome their personal struggles. Imagine if you will this unique art in your lawns or in your home telling the unique story of you. The name Ron Oneal made a movement many years ago, Superfly I come as a reincarnation of the name itself. I have been there, but I want to capture a new way in life. My trees are a taste of art, something that is unique sweet. I invite you to come on this ride with me and celebrate the life of overcoming our own personal struggles. We the people can make America a better place. My trees are music to your ears, yet art to your eyes. Any struggle in which you have faced I can capture within these trees. Let me help you to overcome, but help me to overcome as well.
Thank You, Ron Oneal
