Gallery: Finnish Artist Jaakko Pernu Uses Tree Branches To Make Huge Pu...

But Jakko Pernu´s work exposes the aim of humans to re-design nature, and the other way around!

Jaakko Pernu’s environmental sculptures are inspired by the artist’s experiences growing up in Finland, where he was always helping his father build boats, manipulating wood into organic shapes. That experience with creating elegant shapes shows in his large environmental sculptures. Pernu’s favorite working material is locally-sourced willow branches, which he weaves with his own hands. His sculptures can resemble parasols, spinning tops, and other geometric shapes.
