Artist Patrick Dougherty creates his work, not with a brush or clay, but with living growing trees. Dougherty twists and weaves tree limbs to construct human-sized habitats of all shapes, including houses, pagodas, huts and cocoons. His work doesn’t stop at bent-branch bungalows, though. Some of his pieces depict giant water pitchers and people as well.
Photos of Dougherty’s work are collected in a 200-page book called Stickwork available on his website, StickWork.net.
