My sculptures are vessels for caching personal stories and establishing connections with the past and the future. I cherish the intimate details and still moments punctuating my busy existence, but their clarity can be fleeting. A weeping Calla Lilly outside my studio door, a decomposing whale swept up from the sea, the slowly eroding granite needles from my home in the Black Hills--these things feel like metaphors for experiences and reminiscences dulled by the passage of time. By creating mementos and souvenirs to document my experiences, I seek to give form to my memories, distilling them to their essence and preserving them against decay.
