Galleries > Vessels

The Vessel pieces come out of a deep need to grab the most visceral feelings I think humans experience. This includes the desire to be comforted and safe. Some of these sculptures are carved with hand tools with reference to a rafting trip on the Colorado River. Others are carved with a chain saw and built with found and crafted components to refer to the internal spaces music can fill. The Anxiety Vessels are a safe place to lock away anxieties that are striving to come out.
