John Lore is the owner of Live Edge Design in Duncan BC and co-founder of the oneTree Exhibit. Live Edge Design is an ecology minded custom furniture builder whose principles closely relate to the three pillars of the oneTree Project which are: first, to celebrate the life and history of the tree; second, to showcase the tremendous artistic talent in BC and beyond; and third, to demonstrate the huge social and economic potential of a single salvaged tree.
Through slides and discussion, John will talk about the origins of the oneTree idea, the life and history of our current special tree, its epic salvage operation and the artists that are immortalizing it. He will also touch on ways that the public and Design professionals can honour and use trees that come into their lives.
This free presentation will begin with a drinks reception at 6:30pm, generously hosted by Spinnakers Brewpub. The talk will begin at 7:15pm.
