steel, paint, 2014, 15"w x 11"h x 14.5"d
The steel vessels are made through a coiling process in which the repeated laying down of marks creates form. The bumps and droops describe the heat, density of material and direction of my hand as I lay down the bead. The organic shape and texture suggest growth and aging—skin wrinkles, hips swell, muscles stretch, knees crunch, lips split and toes curl. I often think of the welded line as a scar stitching. My welded vessels are not things that have been scarred, they are scars that have become things. The whole is made by connections rather than by parts.
