treeform future bonsai Jingdezhen 2014

several projects cast and ready for finishing
finished and ready for packing
hand carved plaster models

Shifting from some big Future Retrieval projects I decided to slow down and hand carve these tree forms from plaster for our residency in Jingdezhen this year. Thinking about production and material as well, one design can be oriented in several ways depending on the trunk/base. The bonsai represents time, labor, attention, and patience; which is in the core of our philosophy.
