Event Description

2021 Smithsonian Craft Show - Jessica Beels by Jessica Beels
My work spurs conversations about our relationship to the world we live in - what we keep or discard and why. In order to create sustainable sculptures with a minimum carbon footprint, I reuse human-made and foraged natural materials for this work, like used wrapping paper, old maps, and cicada wings. I choose to make birds, since they have a strong sense of place, building their nests from what they can find around them. They are also connectors, migrating across boundaries and barriers. I hope my work will spread the word about seeing our world as a place of wonder, full of possibilities in even the most mundane materials.
