Vessels > Container Vessels

Each container is made with precious materials and references memory and concealment. Through incorporating found objects from places I have visited, imagery and precious materials I hope to convey to the viewer that each vessel holds a specific moment in time. The vessels include numerous hidden compartments that create tiny, unseen personal spaces for the user. As seductive, precious objects, they are intended to help capture memories and treasured moments, keeping them as reminders for the future.
