Nathan Hart is a contemporary Cheyenne artist from Oklahoma. His primary artistic focus is creating wood vessels. The vessels are hollow-form pieces that beautifully highlight the natural elegance of the wood. Hart uses different types of wood including (but not limited to) Maple, Ash, Walnut, Birch, and Pine. He is especially drawn to burls, which is a highly figured and twisted wood. These pieces of wood are notoriously difficult to work with because of their high tendency to split and break. Some of Hart’s pieces take months to complete.
His work has been featured in galleries across the United States and in many national publications. He studied both art and business extensively and is deeply involved in his community.
