Geometric Series

The "Geometrics"  series is an experiment in and an exploration of  using  a single geometric shape to create a multitude of diverse pieces.

"Triangulation"  reflects our inherent need to think in and apply multiples of three to nearly all aspects of our interpretation of art, religion and human relationships.    It literally is a look at the complexities in our interactions and relationships with others as well as our surroundings. It is my way of interpreting the  triangles and complexities faced by everyone, everyday. Pieces are cut from copper, brass and sterling, textured by hand or by embossing. Each piece is formed to give added dimension and pieces are then riveted together.  Use of rivets allows the pieces to move freely even though each is connected. 

"Rectangulation" and "Squared" takes a look at the "box", "the little pink houses", all of the conventions that seek to define and fit each of us and our world into standardized, safe units.  I have tried to take the standard and  make its combination with like pieces look different.
