About The Space Between II

Exquisite in their delicate detail, this elegant wall ‘sculpture’ is by Heather Allen Hietala. The American artist uses mixed media to create canoe-shaped pieces that symbolize life’s journey. Each of the five black vessels feature different designs. Displayed as a grouping they create a dynamic visual.

“The vessel is a muse, a symbol of change and solitude.” Heather Allen Hietala
