Previously, I primarily focused on raising, fabrication, enameling, and stone setting, and then incorporating them into a single vessel form. While this work has given me invaluable technical knowledge and control of the material, I have since stepped away from silver as my main medium and have chosen steel wire as a way to explore expressing form and movement through the value of lines. I create objects that reference a combination of floral, vessel, architectural and textile forms through nominal usage of line. I see my metalwork in wire as stitches and weavings, and when paired with enamels, taking line segments and creating patterns and designs that when the two are put together become a patchwork of my visual library and life experiences.
