In my sculptures, I work with various media to address women overcoming the restrictions
that were put upon us throughout 
millennia with a focus on the last few centuries. In my ceramic work,
the synthetic material represents the patriarch whereas the elements of nature are symbolic of the feminine. In other 
sculptures and installations, I work with repetition and deconstruction to create a
discourse of separating from mundane domestic constraints. My work that involves hair
depicts the control society had over a woman's body and physical attributes. 
 

Goody Bassett, Let Your Hair Down
Goody Bassett, Let Your Hair Down

Installation. Currently on view at the Sandy Spring Museum, Sandy Spring, MD Goody Bassett was a woman who resided in my hometown, Stratford, CT in the 1600s. She was accused of witch craft, tortured and hung. "Let Your Hair Down" is a quote from the fairy tale Repunzel. In this work, I address how both rope and hair (depending on the century) can both save and/or destroy you.

This work is 1 of 8 various vases. This work addresses the overturn of Roe. The pearls are "choking" the flower to the point where the pedals are dying. The vase represents the "vessel" women have been reduced to. This isn't to claim victimization but a reaction as to how I felt as a woman when SCOTUS reversed this law.
