Construction Series

The Construction Series is a series of functional pieces inspired by Duchamp's readymades, Rilke's 'thing poems', animism, and traditional still life painting, all of which invite a viewer to gaze upon an easily recognizable object. The pieces in this series are fully functional, but my primary motivation is to express the spirit of simple, useful objects using traditional craft techniques and reclaimed materials, both of which add to the animistic energy of the object, which itself expresses the ordinary magic of everyday life that I find so interesting.

The Functional Series series includes the following pieces, click below to view details of each piece:
