Can I organically conceive a practical object? 

12. 2016,  Hard Maple. 

Through the form of this work, I aim to express my contemplations about the stereotypical expectations of carrying children. This large organic form resembles the womb, nurturing and containing individual knobs; hypothetical children. To me, these children are ideas, experiences, failure and knowledge. All growing, all progressing.

Process: My objective was to create the object freely and quickly.  Shaping the curves intentionally on the rotary sander. Conception to completion occurred over one weekend as university studios were about to close for the winter break.
