Mari Andrews – Sculptor

Emeryville, California

Mari Andrews’s Emeryville studio is like an old-world apothecary’s shop, where rows and rows of small glass jars are filled with specimens gathered on her hikes through Muir Woods, Point Reyes, and beyond: molted snakeskins, seedpods, smooth-surfaced stones, rusted bits of wire, tufts of moss, and more. “I grew up in Ohio, on the outskirts of suburbia, right at the edge, where things turn rural and wild. I was outdoors a lot, and have been collecting natural objects since I was a kid.” Andrews has lived and worked in this armory of marvels –part of the 45th Street Artists’ Cooperative–since 1996.
