Created by Bavarian artist Nils-Udo, the Clemson Clay Nest was built with the help of students at Clemson University and other volunteers using over 80 tons of pine logs and bamboo stocks.
Clemson University commissioned artist Nils-Udo to build the Clemson Clay Nest in 2005. The circular structure was made of pine logs and bamboo stocks carefully dug into the rich red clay of the Clemson University Botanical Gardens.
Unfortunately, you can no longer view the nest in person. The giant nest was dismantled two years later and the trees were mulched to fill the large hole it left behind.
