I installation Dimensions vary.

The allure, seduction, and natural beauty of sexuality and the human body are at the core of my recent sculpture. The vessel-form, repeated or standing alone, represents the body, the vagina, shelter, safety, strength, and vulnerability. The surface––slick, delicate, and shimmering––entices the viewer to look inside. The obsessive repetition of forms is parallel to my constant circle of ideas. In a culture that tends to scratch the surface when it comes to issues of gender and sex, making my vessels gives shape and purpose to my own search to understand the depths of female sexuality.
