Sculptor Patrick Dougherty, also known as “the Stickman,” is widely revered for his temporary large-scale sculptures. His most recent work, Made from Scratch, was recently constructed at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in Gainesville, Georgia. The five truncated conical shapes are entirely comprised of sticks sourced from sweetgum, sourwood and red maple saplings, bound and woven together until they stretch 14′ into the sky.

ArtsATL videographer Felipe Barral, captured Dougherty and his assistant working on “Made from Scratch,” to better capture how these monumental sculptures are conceived and constructed. After the work of art was completed, Barral returned to the garden to film the finished work as patrons interacted with it. The large-scale site-specific installation will exist at this location for two years, before eventually breaking down overtime.
