a quote from the article
Sculptural artist Spencer Byles spent a year creating beautiful sculptures out of natural and found materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup (where he lived with his family), Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins. He worked together with elements of his natural surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment.


These look like so much fun!
Here are two of many beautiful forms shown in the link.......

There are several artists doing similar work. Perhaps the best known and most ambitious is Andy Goldsworthy.....

I worked at an art museum that featured Patrick Dougherty and he spent a couple months there building one of his stickworks that wrapped around the staircase, along with some other installations. He's really fascinating to talk with, and it was just amazing to see him work.

I really love the spirals in the first post. Would love to do that in our woods, but I have very little artistic vision. Envious of people that do.
