Spores, Fall 2013

In this series of work I used alternative materials to create forms evocative of fungus and mold. I was drawn to these organisms not just for their formal qualities but also the similarity I see between them and jewelry; they adorn what they graft themselves to. Like mushrooms spotting the surface of a decaying log, these pieces emerge organically from the body.
