These curiosities, are objects of novelty or beauty made by human hand or nature, out of silver and stone. My curiosities are an expression of the way I see the world through symbolic sight. The curiosities are made to represent a particular experience, person or occasion, and the crafted object serves as a specialized symbol.
The combination of component items in each work creates their vividness as symbols from their possibility of resonance in another world. Most of the power of the object is invested with an intimate and ongoing meaning.
In addition I present these curiosities in the psychological space of the human body in a photographic tintype. As the object is brought into the space of the body it becomes part of the subjective realm of the self.
