Handpulled edition of drypoint etchings using akua ink, assembled and stitched with cotton thread; rice paper interior with mounted paper wasp nest and vintage beads.
My current series of vessels were influenced by my studies of vintage botanical drawings from the collections housed at The Lloyd Library, Cincinnati, Ohio. I have always considered my vessels to be functional containers of thoughts and messages. My hope is that the image will serve as a conduit, encouraging the viewer to feel a connection to the natural world.
