I liked the first movie but most of the fun was in not knowing who Wick was.

It's in the news, but I'm actually going to refer you to the home page of Full Grown so you can get it straight from the source.
In essence its an incredibly simple art. You start by training and pruning young tree branches as they grow over specially made formers. At certain points we then graft them together so that the object grows in to one solid piece – I’m interested in the way that this is like an organic 3D printing that uses air, soil and sunshine as its source materials. After it’s grown into the shape we want, we continue to care for and nurture the tree, while it thickens and matures, before harvesting it in the Winter and then letting it season and dry. It’s then a matter of planing and finishing to show off the wood and grain inside.

The whole process takes place over seasons and years – between 4 and 8 years to grow a chair – but when you look at how long and how much effort it takes us now to go from having no tree to the final wooden object, then you realise that the craft we’re a part of developing is not just more cooperative with the natural world; it has an elegant efficiency all of it own.

Spectacular cloud formation spotted over Australia from passenger plane
Image


… A Met Office spokesperson explained the cloud to The Telegraph.

He said: "In terms of how they form, it's about air rising, cooling and then descending again.

"They're most commonly seen in Australia and are most commonly associated with sea breeze condensation.

"The rising, cooling and falling of atmospheric waves creates the thin strips of clouds.

"This cloud is quite a graphic demonstration of it." …
