My work has been accepted to the Galerie Marzee Annual Graduate Show 2014! I'm so honored and excited for this opportunity, and if you happen to be in the area, please stop by the gallery. The work that was accepted is a collection of 8 cast bronze rings.
The differences and similarities between soft natural forms, and harsh straight lines are fascinating. When learning how to cast bronze by vacuum casting, I was constantly pushing the limits of what my molds and wax could do because I enjoyed the experience of working with it so much. I became engrossed in the raw, unrefined structures the wax could produce. Creating jewelry based on cast parts of my body became a theme, as well as experimenting with different geometric patterns and ideas. In the end, I wanted each piece to embody touch and experience – able to be held and enjoyed just as much as worn.
