The Earth Issue  

Sculptors hold the land in their hands when they create, wresting narratives from unyielding stone. This issue is dedicated to those artists who work with the often hard and unrelenting materials drawn from the Earth, and digs in to uncover the relationships between artists and landscape. From an expansive look at the legacy of ceramics in Kangiqliniq (Rankin Inlet), NU, at the renowned Matchbox Gallery, to portfolio on Inuit carvers as well as the past and future of quarrying rights in Nunavut, Earth considers the environment in an expanded scope—thinking beyond the cyclical nature of ice and snow to time as it is captured in stone, metal and clay.
