Roots

Where we come from and the conditions that we are born into-our roots-impact what we become.  In silversmithing, in order to forge the perfect bowl one always begins in the same way, a perfectly round sheet of metal.  But what happens if you change this rule?  If you give the metal a different set of conditions from the very beginning?

In the collection Roots, each object is symbolic of an individual.  Each starting from different conditions and forged into forms, forms that couldn’t have been predicted at any point during the process.
