Available for purchase:
— Growth Porcelain Vessels: a method to create thin, translucent porcelain vessels from mounds of wall insulation foam. These are smooth, stony vessels. Medium 6 × 8.5 in., Large 8 × 14 in.
— Handmade Silicone Ice Tray: a response to the growing desire for handmade domestic objects. The silicone is hand-built like clay, and fingerprints from the process remain embedded in the silicone once fully cured, transferring to the ice that it makes. Because of the process, each is unique. 8.5 × 8.5 in. approx.
— Drape Rings: these rings are made by virtually draping a piece of the band over itself. The rest of the process merges with traditional fine jewelry casting. Rings 1, 2, and 3 are draped once, twice, and three times.
— Poem Scarves: part of an ongoing series of writing made by transcribing and editing things that people say online about their personal belongings. The grey scarf reads "Really clean no problems at all," and the yellow scarf reads "That's it that's all it does".
— Digital Felt Rugs: felting blends the knit pixels together and forms gradients, more closely resembling the original image, and making very nice small rugs. One image is of a good loaf, the other is a found image of a spectral orb in a garden. Personal Loaf Rug 22 × 30 in., Garden Orb Rug 24 × 42 in.
