“The Weight of Overindulgence”; Glass, Nickel, Video

I am interested in the human body and its interactions with other people and objects; our daily interruptions and relations. I work primarily with glass and ceramics, materials that exude an ephemeral and extremely delicate quality. They hold record of process. They allow me to explore themes of femininity, materiality, and interconnectivity, both historically and while looking towards the future. My work seeks to create a timeless and permanent representation of beauty and other culturally disposable ideas.
