Patrick Dougherty’s stick structures are captivating landscape art created from basic building materials (sticks).

I learned about Patrick when I posted about Where the Wild Things Are and my friend Susan tweeted how she thought the fort in the movie was similar to his work.  I think she has a point….certainly the set designers took inspiration from Patrick.  I wish he would come design and build a fort for me…..

The pitchers in the water and Cell Division pieces above are my favorites.  I love how they soften the lines of the architecture and how the architecture seems to make the sculptures more breathtaking.

Which is your favorite piece? Patrick is offering a catalog of his work for sale at his website.  It would make a lovely holiday gift.

  1. how it grows says:

    I love his work!

  2. Sheila H says:

    My favorite piece is the one against the trees – I love how it blends in. I would put stairs and a second floor so you could take advantage of the second level views but I don’t think it’s structural feasible. It would be fun to play, dream, and sing!

  3. Sheila H says:

    I just found out via the website, Patrick will be in MN next May! I hope to watch him build his exhibit. If he takes volunteers, I’ll be there!

    The first look like Ireland.
    Where is he from?
    I like the pitchers and the wall against the trees.
    Thanks for sharing that treat.

  5. I had the distinct privilege of working with Patrick on an installation a couple of years ago. Nicest guy you’d ever want to spent time working with. See this post: http://www.remarc.com/craig/?p=20

    I love the third one – it looks like the spire on the building is evolving and morphing into the hut on the ground. I believe this was installed at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Massachusetts a few years ago (no longer there, unfortunately).

  7. Helen says:

    I love all of his work, but if I have to choose, OK, the pitchers and the sort of leaning bottle shaped pieces.
