ABOUT THE WORK
I desire to create pieces that people can tangibly use in the daily routine of life. I find value in the aesthetic purpose of the objects we are surrounded by. There is immeasurable beauty to be experienced in functional elements, which are typically used in the mundane and commonplace. I want to both reconcile and highlight an object’s utility purpose with something that is beautiful and distinguished.
