I love watching Makers Market filling up each day with amazing new work, with offerings that run the gamut from inexpensive geeky gadgetry to one of a kind pieces of art. One of the discoveries I’ve recently gone gaga over is the wire and wood tree sculptures by Kevin, dba “kaitrees.”

As he explains in the above video, the wires he uses to sculpt the trees are continuous, from root to branches and leaves. The wires in the 21″ sculpture above started out at six feet in length! Kevin humbly describes his creations as “funky metal trees.” Some of them take over a hundred hours to complete. The above piece he estimates at about 160 hours.
