Sheila Sather: Nature Table

I collect natural objects found on walks not knowing how or when I will use them. My work is to arrange them into highly ordered frameworks in order to reveal their contrasts and harmonies.

Seemingly identical objects are in fact individual and distinct and must be selected with care. Of two very similar objects, only one is precisely right for its place in an artwork.

As children we brought natural objects to school and put them on the Nature Table as treasures to be wondered at. I offer the contrast between the wildness and variety of the found objects and the rigid structure of my tables.
