Forget Me Not

Assemblage

Handmade ceramic flowers and found objects Dimensions: 20.5H x 12"W x 30"D Mixed media collage is about expanding the range of artistic choices, to produce a unique effect. Oftentimes, this means refashioning familiar forms, creating a new identity for them. The found objects I incorporate in my work are from a bygone era of handmade family heirlooms, whose qualities stand in marked contrast to the current machine-made era. Nostalgia, as both an emotional response and an idea, is a fundamental element of my work, which probes the complex interplay between memories, humor and the emotional resonance of objects.
