Adornment is Human.
What makes us human? We've dealt with this question for over a millenia. Bipedalism? Language?
What is culture? How do we express it?
Our Material Culture is who we are. My inspiration comes from our human delight with adornment throughout history: regalia, facepaint, tattooing.
Each piece is a sculpture, an archetype, a totem.
My creations explore our engagement with the physical world through the use of warm metals that age beautifully: gold, bronze, brass.
