The nice thing about felted materials is that they stick to rough surfaces, such as this ancient beast of a tree. Once the king of the forest, this beloved fir was struck by lightning a number of years ago, though Star Islanders (Cass Lake, MN) still trek through the heavily wooded Chippewa National forest to observe its majesty.

The scene is jarring in comparison to this cozy’s originally site-specific intention (and also inspiration), an abandoned K-Mart construction site:

The cozy was originally designed to fit over the top of industrial Reserved Parking signs, and will be transported to an urban landscape in the fall.tree
