I can't believe that my first semester at Cranbrook is comming to a close. Here are some works that I made during these past few months.
I've been continuing to explore objects that stimulate the senses but most recently I’ve been exploring tools, or rather the “toolness” of things. I’ve become interested in objects that occupy the hand (handheld) and have been specifically focusing on creating oral sensations.
Up for view from now until January 30th is "Emergence: Craft + Technology" at the Wayne Art Center.
"This innovative new exhibition, Emergence: Craft + Technology, will feature work that exemplifies the ever-increasing intertwining of advanced digital processes with traditional hand-made craft. Whether through the use of computer design programs, CNC and automated tools, or 3D printing, we celebrate the use of new technologies in the production of state-of-the-art craft. Emergence: Craft + Technology will run concurrently with Craft Forms 2015, an annual exhibition...

Last Friday I had the fortune of being able to attend Lauren Fensterstock’s opening at Drexel University. Her show, entitled “Forays and Folies”, showcased her well known black paper constructed landscapes and shadowboxes in addition to new work pictured above. I highly recommend a visit.
Since hearing Sienna Patti’s presentation at the University of the Arts back in perhaps 2011, I’ve been a great admirer of Fensterstock’s work. I remember specifically a story in which the vacuum expelled charcoal all over the gallery space during a de-install. Wonderful that I was...
I was very excited to see my work published in "Showcase 500 Art Necklaces", a recent addition to the Lark Crafts five hundred series. If you have the opportunity to purchase, be sure to check out my friend Emily Cobb just a page behind!

Above are some photos from my new show at Bruce Gallery, Edinboro University, called "Biophilia". For this exhibit I created custom displays for a small selection of works that existed as larger extensions of the forms. Photos of these works can be found here, here and here.
