Arborsculpture highlighted in new book
Sentinel staff report - July 14, 2005
Author Richard Reames is a man on a mission: to help people develop a better appreciation for nature, and to provide insight into the use of trees as more than just oxygen providers growing on the planet.
A commissioned arborsculptor, Reames is the author of the recently released "Arborsculpture: Solutions for a Small Planet," published by Arborsmith Studios of Williams, Ore.
Arborsculpture is the practice of shaping live tree trunks into works of art of construction. Live trees can be shaped into useful, everyday items like chairs, gazebos and tool handles, as well as sculptures such as spirals, boxes and peace signs.
