NY Artist Transforms Antlers into Sculptures
By Phil Bourjaily
Jennifer Trask transforms bones, antlers, and other found objects into flowers, necklaces, and other pieces of art. The flower pictured here is made of antler and bone.
The Hudson Valley, NY-based artist was trained as a metalsmith. Some of her work incorporates bits of antique gilt picture frames. Some pieces are wearable; all of it is striking. Visit her website to see more of her work, which includes some Queen Anne’s Lace, with stems made of bent sewing needles and petals made of bone. It's worth a look.
