One Tree Project

Nine postcards from the ONE TREE project in 2001.
A mature oak tree was used by many arists, crafts people and furniture makers etc. Every single piece of the tree above the ground was used including the leaves, twigs and the root bole. I was given several lenghts of thin veneer to fashion into postcards which were collaged and stamped and sent all over the world with a request that they be added to and returned. 86 out of 100 came back and 56 were exhibited in a travelling show that started at the Edinburgh Botanic gardens and ended at the Geffrye Museum in London in 2002.
