You are the Tree

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020

We are excited to share our current project with you!

Join us in downtown Redwood City during one of our five public interaction events, or let us know a time that works better for you.

For this commission, we created a 400 year old, Coast Redwood Tree stump by making paper pulp from locally sourced, Redwood City, craft industry byproducts such as: spent beer grain, eggshells, fabric scraps, flower parts and hair. There are 25 unique bark sections which are tagged with legacy tree markers to identify both contributors and byproduct materials. Each section celebrates local labor and honors people who make things with their hands.
