Dripping Sweetness, 2006. Porcelain, sugar, tacks, wax, 10" x 7" x 5".

As human beings, we continually deny ephemerality. Yet our transitory nature is an absurd beauty that we should view as a valuable aspect of life. I present the essence of temporal beauty in
my work. Indirect and deviously flexible forms show that process and change are constant. I want the work to find the space between
things—the waif-like membrane that divides soft and hard qualities, which we all possess. When this space of vulnerability is exposed, we grow. My work asks for patience for a full experience.
