Contessa is another of my flying creatures series. She’s part of the bug clan that includes Siggi and Fredrickka.
Her legs are found metal. Her wings are hammered brass sheets. Her spinal ridge is found metal. Her eyes are electrical components. Her belly is hand-cut black marble cubes.
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.
