FLOTILLA OF BOATS
In my creative practice I have explored theories of flow, play, and the relationship between making with memory and place. I combine these concepts by fabricating a fleet of vessels, using traditional gold and silversmithing techniques. Each vessel represents someone special to me. The repetitive process is a labour of love, testing my skill and perseverance.
My current work embodies the significance of place through object representation which contain an essence and connection of that place. Incorporating a copious number of vessels considers the interplay between containment of memory and the many relationships and experiences which imprint upon it.
