thicketseriesblackThicket Series: Black

The Thicket Series examines the process of growth, specifically the shear beauty that can grow out of and from the entanglements that bind us. The series centers on the symbolism of the "Thicket of Life". It portrays the human struggle and it's growth process.

My free standing sculptures are made of both glass and bronze. Similar to making my own glasses, I do all my own bronze work, both waxing and pouring in my studio. I juxtapose both the texture on the bronze and the cane work in the cut and polished glass to compose an artwork rich in cultural referencing through pattern. I strive to make elegant and prosaic works that reflect the nobility of the human spirit, both its resilience and its ability to grow.
