The multicolored chunk of wax (top right) belonged to Norton’s piece Wax Corner, a reference to Joseph Beuys’s Fat Corners. Norton poured the wax in her studio and then photographed it, resulting in an arresting image that evokes her recurrent themes as well as landscape features. “It kind of looks like a volcano, kind of like a waterfall.” Also here, left to right: a small wax hexagon with ceramics and cactus, a hexagonal mold with various ephemera inside, dried leaves from a croton plant, a wax form in a bottle neck, a medium hexagon with white reindeer moss, and a bottle of resin dye.
