Patrick Dougherty is a sculptor who uses tree saplings as his construction material. He began with small pieces on pedestals and his work eventually, er, grew into massive installations that require truckloads of saplings. Patrick Dougherty (Thanks, Michael-Anne Rauback!)

UPDATE: Dougherty was featured in Vol. 8 of CRAFT! "Temple of Twigs"
