USA, Providence, Rhode Island School of Design, 2017

All material carries a past, and whether we acknowledge this lineage or not, it exists. It may be to our advantage — as a way of orienting ourselves in our world — to consider the cycles of creation and destruction intrinsic to the objects and materials that surround us. By deliberately pushing material towards its next incarnation, and tracing the history of objects, I simultaneously reach forward and backward, determining my place in the world.


My experience as a jeweller has led me to the understanding that what is true for metal is also true for us: matter is neither lost nor gained. To understand objects and our behaviour concerning materials, I practice the tracing of material histories. This has led me to see that the life of matter is more expansive than our singular lives; it encompasses us.

Through this work I take ownership of my material legacy and create objects that pose questions about materiality, human limits, and what was and will be.
