Image Statement: This work is about loss, created by hand dyeing, cutting, and forming varied individual vessels. Each vessel has been hand sewn, joining the larger mass that is hollow, and empty. Once vigorous, and bursting to overflow, it has been vacated and left behind to collapse under its own weight. Residue is formed from more than 90 separate non-woven fiber vessels, each with its own individual dye bath.
