An Illuminated Woven Willow Tree House by Tom Hare

UK sculptor Tom Hare works primarily with willow branches to create large organic sculptures that borrow from the same techniques used in basket making. One of his most recent commissions was a giant egg-like treehouse installed in a cherry tree at a private residence. Lit from the inside, the complexity of the structure is highlighted against the sky, making it look a bit more like a spaceship than a treehouse. You can see more of Hare’s work on his Tumblr.
