Homespun is a collection of works influenced by country life, domesticity and craft. The works utilize a variety of materials including fiber, metals, wood and ceramics to explore characteristics of each material. Representations of individuals and animals serve as vehicles for these material explorations. The construction of each of these works is often an unsophisticated approach to manipulating the material at hand. This approach often leads to finalized pieces that feel raw and loose. The overall main characteristics of each work largely depend on the type of manipulation that was utilized to construct its form. Many of the works are results of small increments of time that have been compiled and assembled. This body of work spans a five year period in which its bits and pieces were constructed from spare moments. Processes such as sewing, felting and baking are common household tasks that often can be brought out and put away with ease. Often, the time utilized to undergo these processes is informed by the finalization of laundry, dishes, house cleaning, satisfying children and working.
