Bong Tree (detail)

'The Bong Tree' (detail of lower trunk)

A frame of bamboo was glued and screwed together for strength and a number of strands of sea grass were hot-glued across each of the three panels. Across this were woven strips of machine knitted mohair. Some of the yarn was a disappointing off-grey shade – some of this was dyed in a vat of strong coffee, the rest had a gentle simmering in a very strong vat of tea.
