SAGEBRUSH EAST

These are lead crystal castings of my salt sculptures, named for the landscape of the Pine Barrens where they were created. A New York Times article from 1967 refers to the million-acre sandy soil expanse of untamed wilderness of Southern New Jersey as “Sagebrush East”—as wild and intimidating as the Western landscape, right here on the East Coast. Known for its hidden pygmy pine forests, hidden rural culture, and rare ecology, the Pine Barrens is an unspoiled and magical landscape.
