Living grown garden chair - Yeah, it is a tree, a living tree. The process of shaping trees is called pooktre. This is done by gradually shaping the trees as they grow along predetermined designs.

A pair of nature lovers have created these works of art by using a technique known as tree shaping. Green fingered grafters Peter Cook and Becky Northey spend years painstakingly guiding each tree's growth along predetermined wired design pathways. From lifelike human creations complete with leaves as hair, to beautifully crafted tables and mirrors, the pair have trained more than 150 trees.
