Patrick Dougherty’s newest sculpture at the Morris Arboretum

Last week while doing some work at the Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill, Philadephia I got to see Patrick Dougherty at work setting up his new installation.  It’s basically a cocoon-like abstract sculpture made of twigs and sapling branches.   It makes me think of hobbits & gnomes!!  Anyways…check out his work at stickwork.net.  I would love to see more of his work in person because they look absolutely fabulous…and of course, this one is jaw-dropping in person.  If you get a chance, you should definitely stop by the arboretum and check it out!!

Meanwhile, it kind of reminds me of the treehouses that the Junior Society is currently featuring on their site.  Head over there and check those out too!!   Here’s a taste of their stuff.  They have FOUR different features so…do your due dilligence!
