Description:
Spontaneity involved in the use of found objects is juxtaposed against the composition of forged pieces. The use of telluric materials contrasts with components made from the death of plant matter. Death of organic matter is delicately, and intricately honored.

Yacht or Glacier; One or the other” deals with the melting of Portage Glacier, in Girdwood,

AK. What once was 14 miles of glacial ice, has now melted away to the small chunk of ice theviewer sees pictured in the work between mountain passes.
