Using an experimental process involving a laser, Kate Mess has modernized an age old art by way of this Rusticator Series.
Created at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, this aptly-named series boasts a rural origin, a rustic oxidized finish, and landscape-esque imagery reminiscent of Japanese landscape paintings.
