Artist Statement

My work is Bobbin Lace — hand-woven gold and silver wire with pearls and diamonds. My pieces feature a dynamic contemporary approach to lace while still maintaining reverence to disciplines evolved over centuries. Rather than cutting a shape from a piece of metal, I achieve the desired shape by building up the form using individual wires; the tensile strength of the wire supports structurally sound twists and turns, allowing my mathematical formulations to grow into fluid sculptures.
