Laura Yeats is a wood artist and educator based in Galisteo, NM. She relies on the fallen and salvaged trees she gathers regionally to create one of kind utilitarian bowls, sculptural forms and tree prints on paper. Whitening wood is a bleaching process that involves numerous treatments over many days. Blackening wood by burning is instantaneous. Bringing these two methods together has been the focus of her work for the Black and White show.
