Artist Statement, August 2022
In a self-evolved technique developed from my practice of shibori, through which I came to understand the potential of fiber and of fabric manipulation, I create ethereally transparent fabric forms of stones, bottles, or any number of natural or manufactured artifacts. The paradoxical intricacy and precision through which my technique captures the simple roughness of the form of un-hewn stone or the smooth symmetry of a glass bottle, is a reflection on the perfect and the imperfect. My practice is a meditation on beauty in the inconsistencies of crafting, and in nature.
