L.A. artist builds miniature treehouses around indoor succulents
For those who wish to own a treehouse but can’t due to lack of outdoor space, L.A-based artist Jedediah Corwyn Voltz has created spectacular tiny arboreal habitats. The miniature treehouse sculptures are part of his Somewhere Small series, which focuses on mini arboreal homes built around common household plants, mainly succulents, bonsai and cacti.
Voltz works for stop motion pictures, where he creates commercial miniature props that are require for animated movies. For these treehouse sculptures he has used the leftover materials such as silk, basswood, miniature artworks and other stuff. Using nothing but scrap, he has beautifully managed to bring the original charm of treehouses into home/office interior.
Total 25 of these treehouse models have been contrived by the artist so far. While building these treehouses, Voltz has made sure that there’s no negative impact on natural growth of the plants, which are supporting tiny house structures. These treehouse sculptures will not only enhance aesthetic appeal of any indoor space where they are kept, but also likely to satisfy your desire of having your own treehouse.
Unfortunately these sculptures are not for sale, but you can witness their realistic beauty and charm at Virgil Normal in L.A. through April 23. However, if you’ve got some artistic skills, then you may also try to build similar treehouses on your own.
