I’m interested in making sculpture that elicits tactile curiosity. Is it hard or soft? What happens if I reach out and touch the surface? There is a give and take between the gentle structure I create and the nature of the material. Each piece evolves from loosely controlled manipulations such as the weight of gravity pressing against the resistance of hand built structures or a torn edge of paper.
