From Twig to Trook to Garden Pot Hook
May 12, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
A while back Urban Gardens debuted the Trook, UK designer Geoffrey Fisher’s bespoke carved hooks made from found wood. We are now pleased to announce the arrival of the Trook’s as yet un-named sibling, a hook that holds a garden pot.
Consider this a sneak preview as Fisher is busy tweaking the design as we speak. He suggested one might consider using the piece indoors too by hanging a glazed white pot in the kitchen to hold utensils or in the bathroom for toothbrushes.
Like it’s older brother, Trook, the wood for these handmade hooks is collected from fallen trees on or around Fisher’s property.
But what really makes these pieces unique is the story that comes with each. Attached to the hooks is a short tale referencing the origin of the wood, sometimes offering a bit of interesting history.
I will be visiting the artist next month in his Buckinghamshire Studio after covering the urban gardens show, Jardins Jardin in Paris. Fisher and I will tour the surrounding area where I’ll be sleuthing for cool designs and finds to share with you. Stay tuned for more from across the pond!
Available soon from Urban Gardens, but for now you can order directly from the artist.
