Float is a mixed media sculpture that was created to visually defy gravity. Featuring a plywood outer stand, large neodymium magnets were evenly spaced and embedded into the wood's surface. A single eye hook was placed directly across from the magnets to hold lengths of cable with their own magnets on the ends. The magnet's attraction to each other is captured in a state of equilibrium.

This Bonsai Bandsaw Box was created from rough cut poplar wood that was jointed and planed before being glued into a solid cube. A rough sketch of a bonsai tree was then cut out using a bandsaw along with the drawers and pulls. The wood was sanded before being stained and protected.

Sweet Tooth is a pair of ceramic sculptures created using a combination of slipcasting and handbuilding techniques before being glazed and fired.


The project intentionally takes two favorite treats and gives them unappealing traits as seen by the bite in the doughnut and the melted ice cream cone.
