Balls & Pegs

Crafted with the pared down elements of hand carved balls and pegs, the work in this series proves that limitations provide rich fodder for invention. The labor intensive process of hand carving each element is meant to stand in direct contrast to our current material culture in which consumer goods are cranked out by the zillions, void of character and with no evidence of a maker’s hand. These pieces are meant to stretch the definition of function and celebrate the quirkiness of the individual in a joyful swipe at mass production.
