About the work
Michele Oka Doner
American, b. 1945
Follow

Michele Oka Doner has been called “nature’s scribe.” The sculptures and decorative objects—candelabras, tableware, and accessories—she creates recall organic forms, resembling bark, tree roots, microscopic molecules, and the human body. Over the course of her career she has created several important pieces of public art, including Radiant Site (1991), a groundbreaking tile installation in the New York subway system, and A Walk on the Beach (1995), a two-and-a-half-mile-long concourse at the Miami International Airport of dark terrazzo inlaid with bronze and mother-of-pearl. A recurring theme in her work is the marine flora and fauna of her native Miami. "Miami Beach is primal in my work,” she has said. “It was a place that fascinated and nurtured me, with the forces of nature, the dramatic thunderstorms, the extraordinary light.”
