Iridescent glass plate by Carolyn Meyers Lindberg
“The glass changes according to the angle from which it is viewed with a light source. The iridescence is a deliberate effect achieved by introducing metallic substances into the glass.”

An ancient crab apple tree on the North Coast by Neal Maine
30″ x 22″ Framed, matted, and signed.
Available exclusively at Fairweather’s.
When Neal Maine looks at a tree, what he sees isn’t just a static object but a story—an adventure story, one full of unexpected plot twists and plenty of character development. Take this crab apple tree growing in NCLC’s Neacoxie Forest Habitat Reserve near Seaside, for example.
“It could be just a pretty picture,” he says, “but trees are products of their life histories., and they have all these capacities for change and adaptation. So when you look at a tree like this, you’re saying, Thank you, wind, thank you, shade’—all these forces that made the tree like that.”
It’s not hard to see trees as stories, Neal says. “You just have to get tuned in to a different way of seeing than you might normally walk around within a forest.”
