Deconstructing and creating new – this is what I do with bottles. Wine bottles in particular catch my eye, but I am sometimes drawn to the shape or color of other vessels. I am constantly practicing my skills to make each piece a unique well designed and finished piece of art. Additionally, much of my work has function.
My world is full of reflections. Looking at shadows and negative space, I create delicate appearing sculptures from wine bottles that have fulfilled their initial purpose of transporting the perfect accompaniment to a good meal with friends. Concern for our planet, and inspired by the many folk artists who re-purposed bottles into bottle trees and drinking glasses, sun catchers and wind-chimes, I hope my work will further the dialogue involving each of us and how we can better care for our planet.
