I make objects for the body that strive to achieve a balance between strength and fragility, groundedness and curiosity. In my metalwork, I am very interested in how the material and processes inform the design, and am motivated by the energy transfer from my hands to each individual piece. My environment has always been in flux, moving from urban centers, to high altitude mountains, to the ocean, and I am constantly observing. The latest collection is inspired by celestial bodies, and by the idea of our ever-changing horizons, both as we physically move through the world, and as we gain new personal vistas to challenge and change our relationship to it. I’m intrigued by the notion that the piece is not finished until worn on the body, and always keep in mind who will be wearing it as I am creating it.
