As a Metalsmith, my work deals with the passage of time. Using the imagery of transport, passage or renewal, it becomes a metaphor for navigating life. In this sculptural vessel, that journey is illuminated by sterling silver, pearls, nickel silver, Prismacolor, and Plexiglass. With the fragility of life, this form is created in a medium that infers its indestructibility and timelessness.
