2016 Series

The major faults I found with my sculpture work in my debut series were that they were very difficult to transport because the work was heavy, fragile, and would shift around very easily. The work also relied on glass vases to hold the materials of the pieces in place, which I did not create myself and therefor lacked some originality in its creation.

After a lot of pondering the idea to use concrete in my work seemed to solve a lot of these issues.
