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.
