Vineyard Haven, MA

I am a silversmith creating utilitarian objects and vessels which accentuate how subtle changes in a familiar shape alter how we address those same objects while reintroducing play back into that interactive relationship. I am drawn to the simplicity in the process of taking a flat, two dimensional sheet of silver and hammering it into a three dimensional object. The resulting vessel is a form we encounter every day, an object that both occupies space and contains it.
