Webster is an artist who combines the minimalist vocabulary with ecological concerns. Her work varies from earth mounds, cones and cylinders involving soil, sea salt and beeswax to full scale, outdoor gardens. Here, her low-lying copper planter with Cloudberry slowly descends in a conical shape back into the earth.
