Nature Nurture Essay is an offset-turned box inspired by a recent show on Nubia at the MFA Boston. The shape is based on a vessel form from ancient Egypt with symbolic writing from an alphabet I have created. The symbols on the exterior are an essay of my pondering of the subject , Nature Nurture.

About the Artist:
Beth Ireland is a Woodturner/Sculptor who draws upon a lifetime of professional, traditional Woodturning/Woodworking skills to explore sculpture, architecture and relational aesthetics. Her belief in the power of the object drives her work, exploring the idea of memory locked in objects, and the creation of object as a visible symbol of memory. Working alone and collaboratively she delves into the anthropological meaning of making in our modern lives.
