We visited the island of Cebu to make coat hangers and brooms. The material for the branches is dried and pruned from planned logging. The material used for the base is Mactan Stone, a relatively soft limestone-type stone material that has been deposited by coral and shells. The combination of the natural stone pattern and the branches grown by nature is truly out of control; sometimes it is more beautiful than expected, and sometimes it is a little disappointing. It is a completely different kind of fun than creating an industrial product.
