The Satellite

Aluminum, copper, glass, limestone, herbs


My practice articulates my need to be in dialogue with my psyche/spirit. I turn to sculptural and generative processes that evoke a state of meditation while working. In this state, making becomes a ritual and the object becomes an altar; a record of whatever alchemy occurred. The intent is an installation free to encounter the sublime.
