Patrick Dougherty’s Nests, Lairs & Cocoons

August 5, 2009

This weekend I nested briefly in the work of Patrick Dougherty.  Strolling through the cocoon of one of his installations one breathes the wood scent of braided saplings and witnesses the sky from an entirely new vantage point, that of a nesting bird.  The brilliant and accidental aesthetic encounter prompted me to bring him straight to you, dear reader, so you too could make his acquaintance.  A skilled carpenter, Doughtery utilizes primitive construction techniques to shape saplings into sculpture.
