We love when some visionary soul shifts ordinary objects into the visually beautiful and surprising. Like round stacks of firewood that look like sculptures….

…And Angela Eastman braiding a knoll of Sweetgrass at Penland Svchool of Crafts in North Carolina.

…As she braids the landscape, we imagine her being engulfed in the lovely scent of Sweetgrass that smells just like its name…

And from there we begin to imagine split firewood and grasses formed into all sorts of shapes and visions… as materials for making…
