Seven Seas

This is a gift for some sailor friends who helped keep the wind in my sails this past year.  Seven Seas is made from a copy of Peter Freuchen’s Book of the Seven Seas published by Simon & Schuster in 1957.  Folding books is a lot like crochet or knitting: you get in a groove and the action becomes very meditative.


Seven Seas (2013) 9.5×13 inches. Folded book mounted on board.

I am a librarian and artist living in Eugene, Oregon — where it is often damp and always green.
