New work inspired by Ringling Circus Museum, Cà d’Zan Mansion and the cultural context of early-American women circus performers.
Please come back soon as the project is currently being mounted on the United States Artists Website.
Here are perks for making donations to my project:
|Two of the images printed on Vigor and Pastime depict an original advertisement for electric sewing machines and the other two show women working at home in their tenement apartments sewing Campbell’s Soup Kid doll clothes.
|What would Tiffany think? …and what is the definition of craft today? My lamps resemble a Tiffany lamp, but are made from aluminum and plastic – not the precious materials Tiffany worked with. However, they are inspired by gardens and nature. This prototype was developed using the plasma cutter and Trotec laser cutter. The shades will also be created in the spirit of Tiffany as he arranged flowers and drew them onto patterns to create stained glass designs. I will arrange flowers into the form of the pattern cut-out, photograph and print them onto plastic transparency. The same shade material shown here.
