FOLLOWING THE TIDE
This collection is inspired by the lagoons and cenotes in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico: the movement of the tide and the change in topography reveal different materials shaping the intersection of earth and water. "Following the Tide" is an explosion erupted from the circular nucleus, dispersed into crushed Forest Green marble and aggregates of recuperated brass. It is composed in a pigmented resin on an oxidized bronze base.

"Around them revolved the belief that life is indestructible; Death is merely a preambule to rebirth on a higher level of being. It was a mortal named Orpheus who showed that this higher level is something called Art."
- Herbert Muschamp, Flora
"Orpheus" embraces the beauty of melted wax or decayed flowers: one where they would be admired for their dried texture, altered color, and graceful form. Soft shapes are contrastingly framed through sharp and reflective lines in polished steel.
