361 – Natural Mixed Media Mandala

Life Guard Towers by Shannon Weber
Life Guard Towers by Shannon Weber

Cottage Grove mixed media artist, Shannon Weber, created these amazing art pieces from pieces of Mother Nature entitled “Life Guard Towers.” She used beaver sticks, knotless knitting, wax linen on found beach glass, and kelp bulbs: carved, stitched and woven. I love how her very creative imagination could take all of these individual pieces and put them all together in such delightful ways.

About her art she states:

I find that I am most amused and inspired by observing nature in the simplest ways such as grass waving in the wind to collecting coastal debris while the waves crash around me. Any given day in nature can open a new dialogue to a new body of work.

To view more of her astounding natural and found-objects art, check out her online gallery. And if you ever happen to be in the Willamette Valley Oregon area in late October, she’s usually is a participating artist at one of the studios for the annual Philomath Open Studios.

Shannon’s art gives us permission to let our imaginations run wild, to re-think how we see and use things, and how we can put them all together in new and delightful ways. Now go out an play!
