Tubular Sakura Tree Sculptures
Tom Price Re-Imagines Pipes Into Beautiful Cherry Blossom Forests

If you’ve ever experienced the splendor of a forest of cherry blossom trees in full bloom, I think you’ll be doubly amazed by this Tom Price art installation that recreates that dramatic natural wonder using plastic tubes.

Shown at the Industry Gallery in Washington D.C, the tree trunks of these Tom Price creations were carefully made by heating pieces of tubing, molding them into their desired shapes and then binding them together using cable ties. The canopies were made by taking small cross-sections of tubing and fusing the pieces together to ultimately form these eerily life-like plastic masterpieces.

The final installation occupied an entire room at the Industry Gallery, but I’m sure visitors were appreciative of this as it transported them to a surreal landscape where inorganic plant life existed.
