The Ancestors & Artifacts series came to life by listening to my instincts and exploring a fantasy world, as the final shapes revealed their unique beauty to me. The pieces in this series are fragments, reminiscent of an archeological dig, exploring how memories can appear fantastical when digging into the past. Playing with ideas of preservation and nostalgia, these curios are inevitably nostalgic. Heirlooms are keys to memories and as such are naturally related to fantasy. Our imagination serves them up in a sort of internal bell jar, warping and obscuring the fine details.
