I’m continually striving to contain and somehow hold the Northern light in these subtle vessels. Each vessel’s intent is to capture a particular quality of light, from a specific place and time of day as an act of “witnessing.”

Through a cast paper process, these semi-transparent pieces evoke an organic sense of form materials, somewhat akin to gut skin parkas or other translucent water resistant materials that have been used for millennia in the North.

Although they look quite fragile, these large forms (usually one to two feet all around) are incredibly resilient and strong. The sensitive connotation that the paper and fibre materials convey can be incredibly compelling and reminds the viewer of the ephemeral, fleeting nature of our aesthetic experiences.

Please note this site it undergoing a major revision this week. Full portfolios will be posted by Friday, 11/13. Thank you for your patience.
