INTERVIEW: Becky Northey and Peter Pook Cook on the Tree Shaping Art of Pooktre
As founders of a unique tree shaping method called Pooktre , Australia-based Becky Northey and Peter “Pook” Cook have gained international acclaim for their distinctive art. In 1987, Peter Cook had a thought: "I wonder if I can grow a chair?" And that’s how it all began. Not only did Peter and Becky grow a living garden chair , but they went on to create many other inventive and fantastic designs as they honed their skills in Pooktre. We recently had the pleasure of talking with Becky and Peter about their background, work and methodology. Read on for an exciting look at some of their projects!
