Miriam Carpenter hand-carved these "feathers" in white oak burnished with graphite powder. They each come with a custom glass and wood display (5.5"x 7.75"). Extremely labor intensive and wonderfully delicate, each piece is a unique trompe-l'oeil work of art. The price is per piece.
Carpenter is an American artist and designer based in New Hope, PA. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006, she designed furniture alongside Mira Nakashima for more than seven years. In 2013, her work was included in An Evolving Legacy, an exhibition that featured collaborations between Carpenter and Nakashima at Moderne Gallery. In 2014, she was awarded the Windgate ITE Residency, sponsored by the Center for Art in Wood, together with four wood artists from Japan, Canada, West Ghana, and the United States.
