Our love of trees has led us to imagine many ways to use fallen trunks and limbs indoors. But we NEVER thought of this!

Rooted and suspended all at once: mind blown!

    Coincides with me taking on woodworking and we went to collect some pieces, they had just cut down some poplar trees and i wanted to take a part with roots, but a stump like above would have been too heavy , alas !
    This is really an interesting idea, which leads to many more ideas for ( or underneath) them ( i’d put one in a room and work from there ..lights !)

    Is tere a lamp in the shape of plant ( tree ) roots? Could be made from transluscent material, using LEDs or the like .
    ok, over and out . haven’t finished my pieces, yet .

    Thankyou,
    sahana
