I produce organic sculptural forms made of multiple elements, which are combined to produce a cohesive whole. They are composed of delicate porcelain pieces, supported within a porcelain coated nichrome wire armature, some having additions of Egyptian paste. Their skeletal quality alludes to the essence of nature’s fragility and vulnerability.
