Griffith Evans creates jewelry from New Mexico trees decimated by drought. Climate change, in the form of rising temperatures and reduced snowpack, has provided the materials for his artistic practice. By repurposing dying trees, he celebrates their beauty while calling attention to their plight. After studying the furniture making techniques of bent lamination and steam bending, he was able to scale down the processes for jewelry making. His work is inspired by early African jewelry and curvilinear wood furniture.
