"Practicality with Expression."


Candle Sconce. 


Made from foraged wood from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Wood is baked at 400° for 30 minutes to disinfect and purify from remaining moisture and bacteria. Detail cuts were done with a table saw; after preliminary sanding, the wood was stained with a natural oil finish before being waxed and polished. The base piece was carved to seat a small candle or other small lighting apparatus with a hand router, and then attached to the body piece with countersinking technique. Sheet moss was foraged from the Pacific Northwest. Each sconce was left to burn its first candle and bathe in moonlight during the night of November 25th, 2015, the year’s 11th full moon.

Fitted with hanging hardware to sit flush and effortlessly against any wall.

“Adolescence”


The foundation is a large pinch pot with a fitted throat and spout. After setting out to dry for 3 days, texture was applied to the soft body with the round edge of a hammer, creating the rippling effect from the base to the mouth of the pot. The clay was fired at 1950° fahrenheit with a high fire gloss consisting of red, blue, and copper tones.
