Details:Celebrate the beauty and soul of natural materials in this exhibition featuring Miriam Carpenter’s sculpture, furniture, prints, and drawings that exemplify her careful, deliberate process of transformation. Appearing deceptively simple at first glance, each of Carpenter’s pieces involve complex calculations and an intimate understanding of her chosen material, whether wood or clay. Carpenter developed her deep appreciation for materials during the seven years she designed furniture with Mira Nakashima (b. 1942), daughter of woodworker, architect, and furniture maker George Nakashima (1905-1990). At George Nakashima Woodworkers studio in New Hope, Pennsylvania, Carpenter learned to read the life of a tree through the knots, veins, and rings of its wood. In 2012, she began carving small, intricate feathers that incorporate the wood’s grain pattern and structure into the object’s final design. These wood feathers are exceedingly thin and finely detailed. To Carpenter, they symbolize “that which is ethereal…a testament to the resilience of nature.”
