Artist Deborah Lozier collected sticks on an island in the Oslo Fjord that resembled wooden utensils (seen in the image above) and then added the flatware extensions. When making this piece, she asked herself the question, “what if plants had tools?”

This piece is featured in the exhibition Do Not Destroy: Trees, Art, and Jewish Thought, closing Sept 9.
