The Story of Azivalcreations
By Joshua Starmer
The Inicial Idea
My inicial idea was to create a spiral bed side lamp shade from willow. To create the mold for the lamp shade I went out and bought some waste paper baskets and some plastic plant pots and went to work making my first moulds, which served as a support for the willow to grow around.
This is how they turned out...
After creating the small lamp molds I had ideas of creating something bigger.
For this I would need another feild...
First Harvest and Planting Out
One of my neighbours (Mario de cima, Mario from up top, lol) kindly offered me a tree to harvest which I was pleased to accept. These willow tree cuttings would be used to make my chairs.
Chair Design, From The Workshop To The Field
Firstly, I had to desing a chair mold that the willow would be able to grow on, but at the end of the growing process, I would need to be able to remove the grown chair from the mold without harming it.
Secondly, I needed to covince my father that buying me a mig welder, for my 14th Birthday and Christmas present, was a good idea.
