Last 2 Photos are reference only. Originally intended as a way to bridge the utilitarian nature of my craft and the aesthetics concepts I was pursuing, this project has morphed into something quite different. These Slider sculptures have become incredibly popular within the maker community for their ability to exist as both art and functional object. To explore this idea further, I have embarked on making a series of kinetic pieces to further blur the lines between the worlds of fine art, design, and craft.This project was the first of its kind.
