About the Birch Bark Pattern Design
If It Wasn’t For Bees and Water
A birch bark biting is a unique piece of Indigenous artwork. They are made from biting an image, using only the teeth, into a thin, single layer of birch bark harvested from the birch tree. Then, by carefully folding the bark, the pattern imagined is pressed into the birch bark, using only the teeth. Because each piece must be created individually, birch bark bitings are like people; no two are exactly alike!
"I honour the water and the bees. They are two things that everything on Mother Earth depends on and therefore are deserving of the utmost respect. Without them, nothing would exist."
— Pat Bruderer
This original work has been digitalized to represent a one-of-a-kind birchbark biting piece. The distinct lines in the fabric show the character of a birch tree.
