These Found Object Sculptures were created while Stewart was staff at the Vermont Studio Centre Artists' residence. As she walked, small objects she saw would take her breath away. As they collected in her studio, they took on the feeling of an alter. Taking the time to gaze at a small piece or back or stone felt very meditative.
She constructed small boxes from the left over wood in the carpentry shop, dipped old sheets into hydrocal and plaster to drape over the boxes creating the alters on which to put the beautiful pieces of nature.
Found object alters can be hung alone or in a large or small grouping to create a nature inspiring installation. Wonderful in a corporate lobby or public space.
