just playing with the camera, and documenting my past and present thought processes in metals.
this is recent. and it is gelatin. yes, in sheet form. above is a reject piece, but it still led me to somewhere. some things i have learned. 1. do not fight it's natural form. i had envisioned the shape I wanted, but i couldn't make it what i had visualized. it wasn't until that i gave up and went with gelatin's natural form that i ended up with some beautiful things (photos later). 2. stuff is friggin' delicate!
my absolute favorite - my box of ribbons. absolutely cannot work without it, i need textiles!
as for everything below, they are the results of my exploration of form and material. they may not have worked out, but I needed to create them in order to create the successful forms that followed. and who knows, i may go back one day and use these "rejects." they are mainly from fall 2008, but some are from spring 2008 as well.
earrings that did not work out.
