Corn Seedlings



One spring, a Holt County, Missouri, farmer brought young corn seedlings from their family farm to my studio. The task was to preserve them so that each of the five children would have a kind of a botanical artifact from the farm they grew up on.

I used a frame hand crafted frame in old growth pine.

Outside dimensions are 26″  x  35″


There’s a split in the top of the frame.

I have two larger frames, 33″ x 43″, made from the same old-growth pine.
