By means of soldering, welding, and dry joinery I create utilitarian sculptures by converting mechanical and scientific innovations from the 19th century into light fixtures using lighting technologies introduced in the mid-1880s by Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Each piece is an abstraction from innovations of the Victorian time period to provoke in the viewer a sense of nostalgia and appreciation of the humble foundations of the various industries that we live by today.
