Sculpture: Clay, Ceramic on Ceramic, Stainless Steel.
The works in the Ghosts series are unglazed low-fire ceramic pieces that have been sealed with acrylic paint. They sit in stainless steel structures that have been fashioned from tomato cages.
My current work examines on a very personal level the ways in which advances in science have radically altered our relationship to nature. The sculptures conjoin disparate elements, biological, mechanical, and architectural, to create anomalous structures that could be imagined as the outcome of science gone awry. They have been strongly influenced by my long standing interest in natural history, and evolutionary theory as well as my obsessions with birding and gardening.
