Brass, Copper, Sycamore Bark

Closed: 7" x 6" x 1.5"

Each page of sycamore bark is backed with a pierced copper lining based on the shape and design of the found pieces. The copper pieces are then hinged into the metal spine which is then fitted into the outer cover. This piece discusses the temporary nature of experience reflected in the ephemerality of the sycamore bark. Over time, these pages will crack and fall away, leaving only the pierced impressions of how the bark was found.
