Shown is a turned vase that holds a gift given to me by my grandmother before she passed. The wood burning on the exterior is of a red maple and a weeping willow, which were the trees in her backyard. Turned from poplar, walnut, and cherry.
Drawing from connections of memory and the past, I am making moments of time become a tangible object. I am designing various ways to reflect the natural light that surrounds the viewer. Creating a space where one or more can sit and interact with each other has become a form of importance to my work.
