Grace, has been made by pressing a soft wax into a set of Irish linen doilies the belonged to my maternal grandmother.
Each piece has been cast in bronze and hangs from a silver chain.
24" silver chain.
For Keeps will be a growing collection and a review of the connections we accumulate by holding onto heirlooms and other objects in attempts to facilitate remembering. As a long time collector of sentimental objects, this project is introspective and has me questioning if I am capable of keeping the memory without the possession. An old concert ticket, a magnet from that really great trip, Grandpa’s old hats, the armchair everyone wants to sit in at Grandma's…so many memory baubles! I’m sure you have a few.
Beautiful, love the naturalness and the reminder of a beautiful woman. I wear it very often with great reminders of the artist and her grandmother.
