Description
I am interested in discovering inherent properties of the materials I work with and highlighting these qualities through unexpected interactions. Currently I’m fascinated with iron and its property of rusting. To quote John Ruskin, “It is not a fault in the iron, but a virtue, to be so fond of getting rusted.” Through the oxidization process iron loses its traditional connotations of strength, durability, and functionality, becoming ephemeral and unpredictable. Weaving the iron with natural fibers allows the rust to leave its mark: the stain becomes a permanent indication of a transitory process.
