Painted Copper + Gem Minerals 2010-2013
My work is fueled by a deep appreciation for the history of craft and the process of making with my hands.
I am drawn to the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.
Resulting in pieces that provide information of the past while speaking of the present.
On the surface a conversation of nuance and contrast develop.
This dialog leads to questions and drives the focus of my research.
