I got it! Andy Goldsworthy! Andy works with natural materials like ice, sticks, leaves, rocks and dirt. For the most part his artwork is assembled with natural materials like thorns and even saliva (used for the ice star shown here). There are many books out featuring his artworks, and the one that I had the opportunity to flip through was titled "Wood". There is also a documentary that I am hoping to watch called "Rivers and Tides". View a clip here. I laughed at the end of this clip when he says "I am so amazed that I am even alive". I know when I lose a day worth of work (computer crash, lost notes, etc), my sentiments are a little different, and often involve cursing profusely.
