Artist Statement

I am in search of new ways to represent the more mundane aspects of our shared human condition. Using functional glass objects as instruments for my exploration, I focus my efforts around controlled convocations of formalities. I use the mundane to show how extraordinary these formalities truly are through the creation of the spectacle, the absurd, and recontextualization. Each piece works towards a conceptual reconsideration of function, mundanity, community, and engagement of objects.

 

My fascination with objects comes from an interest in the way things change through their use— in their physicality but more so their “lived experience”; like a cup that has left a water mark on a wooden table or has been chipped and scratched over time. These blemishes carry with them the ability and evidence to showcase the enormity that can be contained in a simple conversation.
