Note: This is an art object sculpture. It is meant to be displayed, but it can be a functional piece if you are gentle and care for it. It CAN be worn as a necklace. It CAN be used as a tea infuser. It CAN be displayed as a beautiful sculpture and loved just for that. The hinged base opens, so you can use it as a locket of sorts. The piece can be used as a tea infuser.

Process: This is all hand fabricated, cut by hand and soldered using a torch with flame.
Crackle and static interrupted us.

The ornaments decorated the table,

And the couch,

With a few on the tree.

We had important family plans to make,

But instead, we decided to dance with our eggnog.

Artist StatementI look at my pieces as individual time capsules: vessels containing meaning and memories. Nostalgia, place, interaction, and ritual are all facets I incorporate within the work. Each sculpture is carefully planned but I allow the material to direct me while I am working . I make objects that to me are the “everyday extraordinary.” These are moments with objects we tend to overlook which shape us and make us, moments I am passionate about making small-scale monuments for.

What I Love Doing
I love capturing a narrative in metal. I love making parts move with mechanisms I fabricate from hand. I love talking to people about their own history and how something I have created sparks an old memory.
What I Find Beautiful
I find the natural patterns (patina) that occurs on metal after being heated under flame to be beautiful. I also find a full cup of tea paired with a record player playing to be beautiful.
My Favorite Memory
My favorite memory spans across many years- which is all the time I took to sit on a front porch swing with my Grandpa.
My Favorite Art Style
Not surprisingly, I love craftsman and mission style art/craft. I also love surrealism.
