Work is well underway for the Nagoya Exhibition this January! (see nagoya-vermont.blogspot.com for more information). I have been increasingly busy working as a Studio Art Intern at Dartmouth College, as well as working at the Claflin Jewelry workshop, on top of continuing my work for upcoming exhibitions. I can't complian though! I have learned so much the past couple months and I am just so incredibly grateful for all the help and support I have been given.
I just wanted to thank everyone for their continued support and let you all know that I will be updating my blog over winter break...I know that it has gotten severly out of date! I will also be working to create my first 'real' website. Stay tuned!

Yellow. Yellow is a wearable sculpture. She is very shy, but loves to dance!
The Clam. Playful, but very mischievous. Always trying to cause trouble.
This sculpture is a sort of self portrait. It is a lantern made of fall leaves, all yellow. The top is yellow tissue paper. The light shines down through the bottom, creating the shape of a leaf on the ground. I welded the armature out of steel, with chicken wire lining the inside of the leaves.
This is another study using gloves as a forming method for plaster. For this piece I put wire inside the latex gloves and then filled them with plaster. They turned out disfigured and rusty, and they rest upon a dusty book shelf.
Pillow Monster, sometimes referred to as Pillow Suit, is a soft, wearable sculpture made of flannel and polyfill. Pillow Monster has been seen all around Hanover, NH and has recently traveled as far as Boston. Pillow Monster is very friendly and curious.
This sculpture is a helmet constructed of thimbles. It is on a hat rack that I welded. I was playing with the idea of protection. A thimble on a small scale protects the thumb. A helmet protects the head.
