Pooktre: The Art of Tree Shaping

Peter Cook and his partner Becky Northey make furniture and sculpture from trees. What’s unique about their method is that they shape the trees into predetermined objects while the trees are still growing. The name they have given this technique is Pooktre. According to their website, some designs ‘are intended for harvest to be high quality indoor furniture and others will remain living art.’

Wow! I wonder if that chair is sit-able? Their website looks rather design-challenged for them being artists... But I digress. What they do is way neat!
