Addis Toilet Tree Brush

2009 / speculative public sculpture

In the 1930’s, the Addis Brush Company introduced an artificial Christmas tree whose branches were made from the same brush bristles as the toilet bowl brushes it produced. The Addis Toilet Tree Brush pays homage to the company’s ingenuity by rearranging these long-lasting, vintage tree branches into a newly shaped tree.

If you know of a suitable location for an Addis Brush Co. inspired evergreen, I will build one to your specifications using recycled vintage Christmas trees.
