Simply Amazing! Willow Branch Sculptures (Photos)

I will forever have a soft spot in my heart for environmentally themed art work. The works by artist Laura Ellen Bacon is amazing. She creates these larger than life tributes to nature using willow branches.

About the Artist

The work of Laura Ellen Bacon has been described as, ‘monumental’, ‘uncanny’, ‘compelling’ and ‘beautifully strange’. Laura’s contemporary sculptures were initially inspired by nest-like forms and she has since developed her own unique language with materials – a language that communicates the properties of the materials she uses and her strong desire to turn chaotic amounts of raw materials into ‘spaces’ of some kind.

Powerfully organic in appearance, she invariably creates site specific art and has gained a strong reputation for her large works in built environments, interior settings and rolling landscapes, including Chatsworth, Sudeley Castle (for Sotheby’s) and The Artists’ House at Roche Court in Wiltshire.

Words cannot describe how awesome these look so take a look below:

    Those are beautiful sculptures. There were bamboo sculptures at the botanic gardens last summer somewhat similar to these.

      I would love to see these in real life. I cannot even imagine how long it takes to get these sculptures done. Thanks for commenting 🙂
