Artist's description:

Based upon a fern tree outside my ex-wife's parents house the tree was made as part of Carbon Tree Print. This project involves the production of meticulously crafted bonsai trees made of thousands of match heads. Each tree is unique. Some of these fetish sculptures have been kept for display, whilst others are documented as they burn or explode. Created as a response to the rhetoric surrounding recent ecological issues such as the North American Tar Sands, these beautiful but highly explosive sculptures are intended to bring viewers to consider the impact that the destruction has on perceptions of production and value.
