June 18th-July 18th, 2021

In the era of Covid, physical human connection became something more complicated and required a new layer of risk assessment for actions we once took for granted. ‍ Next Best Thing is a series of felted wool sculptures that is meant to be visually inviting and approachable utilizing soft textures and playful colors. The forms are inspired by the parts of people and life we missed while adjusting our lives to conform to a new, precautionary, lifestyle. The materials used in this collection represent our new alertness to microbial safety with wool’s natural anti-bacterial traits. Everything about these pieces are meant to invite people to come in close. ‍ Living in the taboo of touch and connection for over a year, I want to celebrate the real connections in our life with a deeper sense of preciousness.
