Sculptural Objects

This body of work is primarily composed of silver and porcelain pieces that fit in the palm of my hand. My process involves transforming found objects from my environment in an effort to preserve them and, in effect, a single moment in time. My goal is to distill these experiences down to their very essence. During the firing process, where the porcelain isvitrified and the silver is sintered, theoriginal decomposingorganic form that had been coated in these materials is destroyed and leaves behind apermanentreminder. While some pieces are sculptural and others adornments, their intimate scale is intended to draw the viewer in to investigate their forms and make personal connections to this idea of fragility and preservation.
