Friday Fun Links

December 3, 2010

To begin today’s links of greatness, let us first take a gander at something my friend Paul showed me: Pooktre Tree Shapers. From the website:

In 1986 Peter had the idea of growing a chair. Nine years later Peter and Becky became partners. Pooktre was born. Together they have mastered the art of Tree shaping. Pooktre has perfected a Gradual shaping method, which is the shaping of trees as they grow along predetermined designs. Designing and setting up the supporting famework are fundamental to the success of a tree. Some are intended for harvest to be high quality indoor furniture and others will remain living art.”

And this is what they got:


First of all, I love that we live in a world where someone can say “hey, let’s make tree sculptures using living trees” and then they make it happen. And they find a partner who feels just as passionate about it as them. Second, how creepy would it be to wander onto their property at night and see these strange tree people? But I still want one of those chairs.
