A materials and technique exploration using cedar wood, metalworking, and lapidary.
Pin Point Camera
The following model was a designed challenged issued as part of a sculpture class. The task was to recreate an object you used frequently using corrugated cardboard and wood glue exclusively. The model had to be to scale, and contain an element which further tied it to the original item. Within the model of my Nikon D3500 hundred, I imbedded a pin point camera, and thus art imitates life imitating art.
A Rock at What Cost
This ring was the result of a transformative design challenge in which a common object is reworked into another everyday item without the assistance of adhesives, such as tape or glue, to alter or hold it together. Furthermore, the alterations applied needed to highlight other themes associated with the original object that could also be applied to the new item, resulting in both a physical and conceptual transformation.
A Rock at What Cost, plays with themes revolving around the diamond mining industry, societal assignment of value, and the importance we place on wealth. Using South African currency, I reworked the notes using origami, weaving, and knotting to create a wearable ring.

Recycled from an old bomber jacket, this leather laptop case comfortably fits a Lenovo ThinkPad.
This coffee table was built as part of a sculpture class where the challenge was to construct a “stage” using a 2’x4’ piece of plywood and an 8’ long rod of bamboo. The fully constructed object needed to be at least one foot off the ground and comfortably support the weight of an adult person. Wanting to build something that would also serve a functional purpose, I made a coffee table that would allow me to put my travel books on display, while providing some much needed counterspace in my living room
