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 commonplace. I want to both reconcile and highlight an object’s utility purpose with something that is beautiful and distinguished.
