DESCRIPTION: Metal & Woodwork, , Acrylic paint, lacquer, cotton cord, wood
ARTIST STATEMENT: This recent body of work, handmade hand-painted wooden planters, was created in Montana during 2020-2021 in pandemic isolation. Using blue pine wood that naturally died due to the pine bark beetle infestation, the wood was designed, proportioned, sanded, and drilled to be able to fit a house plant. Elizabeth then hand painted using acrylic paint designs and colors reminiscent of the wild Montana surroundings. The pieces are finished with a clear gloss lacquer.
