Throughout my life, I have a difficult time parting with the things that I own. In regards to my artwork, it is tough for me to sell or give away my pieces, for I will no longer have ownership of them. All of the things that I make are generally 'one-of-a-kind' type objects. Even if I could make a second, or a copy, it would not be the same as the original. Thus such objects appear to contain a threat of loss within their very fabric.

Reflections of oneself, myself
Reflects a process that would not normally be shown, the internal structure.
Reflects what I always go to in my thoughts, is worn continuously and touched.
Reflects the identifiable but blurred obscured blocked
Reflects what you can take away
