These Definitely Says A lot About Trees.

Here are some trees which we don't come across very often; if you do, then perhaps its worth to take a snapshot of them.

This tree has pieces of metal, including a bicycle, a ship's anchor and chain, and a bridle bit. The sycamore tree, from the 1800s, stands in the yard of an old smithy in the Trossachs, now part of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park.

Richard Reames is an arborsculptor. About 16 years ago he was inspired by the work of Axel Erlandson (1884-1964), who grew a roadside attraction featuring his amazing trees. Arborsculpture is the art of shaping the trunks and branches of trees. And these are some of his creations.

Tree Drawings: A series of drawings were created using an interesting concept - by attaching drawing implements to the tips of tree branches, and the rest was done by the wind. The results were quite impressive as each paper recorded different qualities and characteristics of each tree.

Artistic Trees: Yuken Teruya uses everyday objects and transforms them and their meanings to reflect on the contemporary lifestyle. It can be pizza boxes, bags, desserts, flags or toilet paper rolls; when they come into his hand they turn out to be intricate art works meticulously created. In each bag or roll, the shape of a tree is created without adding or removing anything; each tree stands in the same bag that it came from. When you see it under the natural light, the delicate tree shows inside a paper bag. The work is simply beautiful!

Here we have 'Square Tree Trunk' series which are a part of NATURE V2.01 project, a limited edition bench made of plywood structure covered in original tree bark -'Round' is perfect in nature, but 'square' is perfect for industrial standard.
