statement

 

 

My life has been framed by rituals involving food and the natural world. I am at home in the places where those two things intersect: small-scale agriculture, foraging, and using the materials gleaned from those activities. I design woven metal vessels to implement those activities in celebration of the quiet space provided by them.

Through a combination of patterning, weaving, and forming, I construct basket-like forms with intention for an individual’s pursuits. In the spirit of Shaker design, function comes first, but not at the sacrifice of beauty. Primarily made with copper sheet and elements of un-dyed canvas, the collection takes on various shapes, sizes, and purposes.

Each design offers entrance to a space of stillness and solitude. From romantic homesteaders to city dwellers in search of mental nourishment, my hope is that this collection will guide you into nearby woods in search of wild berries.
