Traveling to Mougins one day I noticed a group of workmen clearing and shredding young trees on the edge of a forst. This material was also at the location where I was working. On asking if I could have some of these trees I was offered as much as I would like! Four trailer loads later and cutting back a few within my own location I started out on an armature which resembled a large narrow basket. Two weeks later it was over 6 metres in length.
