My Dad taught me how to use the table saw years ago. I still use the original saw he found for me at a garage sale. It is small enough to move around my studio and perfect for my needs. I built this small house with wood, sanded, assembled and stained it. After drawing â€œSea Daisyâ€(pastel and graphite drawing) I decided to use the plant, collected along Seaside Creek on James Island, within this small house structure. It was the first of my house series. Individual stalks of sweet grass were laboriously placed one by one with tweezers into the upper section. Pluff mud mixed with mat medium (glue) was placed along the seam of glass on each side.
Each house sculpture in this series is a meditation on my detachment and connection with nature. It is my search for wholeness in a modern world fueled by fast-paced technology and materialism.
