only used on special occasions

I received some ceramic molds that became the inspiration for new work in the “Preserve” series.  I cast the molds using wax to create objects that mimic china used only for holidays and special occasions. These ephemeral objects directly relate to issues of fragility and domesticity.

A table, four chairs, dishes, cutlery cast in paper pulp represent the memory of the kitchen in “The Smallest House Known to Man”.  This kitchen installation is an evolving entity in my storefront window which engages the passing foot traffic and encourages dialogue.
