Pursuant to my PhD thesis, I am currently working to get some sketches off the page and into form.
I am working in a couple different directions to stagger the stops and starts of making and to circumvent ideas of transfer.
One of the directions is in pursuit of creating little glass barrels (9"h x 6"dia). Each barrel can reveal the level of their interior contents. These works are allowing me to work on the the concepts of what is needed, supplied and used. Here are some images:
As well as the Barrels, I am working on some Containers. the Containers are moving in two different directions, but each look to address the ability to affect and connect the destination and origins that they service.
The first direction is making these forms out of glass. I am working towards making hollow transparent glass container forms to hold/provide constructed scenes of their origin/destination. I have currently finalized the making of the glass exteriors. Here are process shots of these works thus far:
The second direction is to create larger steel containers to stack, stand on end and illustrate upon to explore the concept of their relationship to the health and development of the places they service and float between. Here is the developments so far:
