pennies, white glue
book matches, waxed linen thread

golf tees, white glue
paper mache mokume, gold leaf
Drawn to painstakingly
designing these vessels, I
wanted to incorporate line,
pattern, and the repetition
of shapes in a way that
would enhance their color,
texture, and form.  

The technique chosen to
create each of these
vessels was inspired by my
personal and professional
journey through the
spiritual and creative

The match basket took
over five years to complete
and the other vessels took
weeks.  I worked on them
sporadically, bringing one
out when I needed a rest
from daily stress.  
Working on these pieces
allowed plenty of time for
me to develop a feeling of
peace and calm and
connect with my divine
energy source.
