Makoto Azuma Seeks to Make his LEGO Bonsai Pine Tree a Commercial ProductRenowned botanical artist Makoto Azuma, who created a Bonsai Pine Tree out of LEGOs a while back,
Renowned botanical artist Makoto Azuma, who created a Bonsai Pine Tree out of LEGOs a while back, now seeks to turn his creation into a commercial product through LEGO‘s CUUSOO program. The tree model walks the line between organic and synthetic, and is a rather intriguing interpretation of natural beauty. The CUUSOO program is a relatively new initiative that accepts creative submissions from the public. If voted up with 10,000 supporters, the design will be made into an official set. With Azuma’s following thus far, the production of the Bonsai Pine Tree model is surely quickly approaching, though perhaps the real thinker is why this fantastic product hasn’t been created sooner.
