The Role of the Studio Maker in Contemporary American Society
I am producing objects that will shed light on the challenges we makers face today. My objects are intended to be silly and serious, loose and refined, and full of integrity and passion. They are dedicated to the process of making exciting objects that people want to collect and live with for generations. The goal is to direct the dialog toward the meaning of materials in our culture and to challenge what the role of the maker can be in coming years. Currently, makers are studio-driven individuals and I invite the reader to consider a world in which they are a social designer who brings varying materials and clients together to enhance the human experience.
