Sierra Henries Birch Bark Cutting
Sierra Henries is a young Nipmuck artist living in Maine. Her chosen field of art is designing on birch bark. This extraordinary piece has been painstakingly cut from a sheet of bark, then darkened and adorned with a wood burning tool. The exquisite geometric design required precision and patience over countless hours to achieve, and makes for a beautiful showpiece.
The design is pressed between two pieces of framed glass. It is also shown with a cream colored background, which is achieved by placing a board behind the frame, and could be made permanent by the buyer. The back of the birch is shown, with the artists’ initials and year of creation.
Frame is 10 3/4 in. high x 8 3/4 in. wide.
Note: the Nipmuck, or Nipmuc tribe, is recognized by the state of Massachusetts.
