This year is the 10th anniversary of Federation Square in Melbourne, so ‘Fed Square and Creative Production Services have commissioned this new work by Dougherty, whose enormous, expressive sculptures are woven from vast quantities of willow tree saplings and sticks. Over the course of three weeks, Patrick Dougherty weaved and bended more than ten tonnes of willow into an incredible sculpture using just gloves and a pair of secateurs.’

Here’s the result. Not too shabby, right?
