Community/Communion is about both the solid connectedness of our interactions with others and the ephemeral nature of those interactions. The base of each piece resembles tree trunks with roots sinking into the floor, while the tops are stylized, abstract bird heads.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
