Patrick Doughertys “branchwork” art

patrick dougherty's “branchwork” art , where he makes fantastic sculptures and huts (for lack of a better word) from saplings, branches, and twigs - but he has some new installations that deserve another look.

This one above is called the Na Hale ‘o waiai, Hawaiian for “Wild dwellings built from strawberry guava.”
