Fall 2009
Fliptop Ottaman 
16x 16x 16" 

First case good piece with an upholstered seat cushion, which flips into a hand veneered tabletop. Also functions as a storage compartment.  Built out of Medex for durability and structure. 

*Note, this was my teacher's design. The only thing I could change were the finishes and treatment to the sides of the ottaman.

Fall 2009
Untitled Installation
aprox. 5 to 10"

An installation inspired by deep sea creatures and Antarctic structures. Formed out of gel gloss, then hand stitched. I am going to revisit the piece this week and experiment with different ways of displaying them. Hanging the mini sculptures just didn't work to show the patterns of the gloss or the composition underneath.
