Botswana Recollection

A Folding Screen commission

Cherry, elm burl veneers, hand made paper by Angela Follensbee,
Screen 76 wide x 76 inches tall
Table 16 x 29 wide x 26 high.
One of several folding screens with hand cut hinges and shoji-style panels that pivot, adding a kinetic flexibility to how it can be used. The artwork is inspired by a recent trip to Botswana taken by the patrons who commissioned it, coordinating between the carvings and the paper design, with a little table and leopard to accompany it. Angela incorporated local grasses and locust pods to really get into the theme.
