This is the only existing print that came from this drawing, after having learned how to do Lithography this last semester. I ended up doing the process wrong when printing, so my picture on the stone became a large blur of black. And unfortunately the paper I printed on was newsprint, so when I scanned the piece, the quality of paper really showed through.. But otherwise, I would have really liked to have way more of them printed, because I’m really proud of how it came out.

Adventitious

by Abby Mitton

After having kept a piece of plywood in storage, without having any use for several months, I had decided that I should try something unordinary with it, to take the wood back to it’s natural state yet making it awkward and out of place, since it really has no way of going back that easily. From it’s original form, from tree, to processed wood, to a recreation of it’s origin, I created this. A vertically standing slab of plywood, with mossy undergrowth, tree knots, and several sturdy branches.

Made for my Experimenting with Materials class this last semester.

Finished in May of 2013

 I found this poor little bird outside, he had just died. I made him a mini coffin and buried him ♥

I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.

From our library:
Woodcraft and Camping by George Washington Sears.
An immediate hit when first published in 1884, Woodcraft outlines the practical lessons, gear and anecdotes of a 60-year-old Sears (under the penname “Nessmuk”) as he tramps through the Adirondacks with his 10lb solo canoe named Sairy Gamp.

In this sculpture by artist Vincent Kohler, an exploded view of a tree shows various cuts of lumber and what parts of a tree they’re from. You may be surprised to discover that the piece is not made of wood, but rather resin and polystyrene. It’s as beautiful as it is educational.

One of my most favorite things about trees. The center of each one is so remarkable and beautiful.
Such long, patient lives to live.
