About This Artist
I am always inspired by architecture and love all the possibilities LEGO can provide me to recycle into an art medium. I consider my work to be wearable modern art. I have a passion for design and strive for the highest standards in craftsmanship and durability. I cut, drill, and sandblast each LEGO piece. Sandblasting achieves a matte finish that creates simplicity to a shinny beautiful toy brick. LEGO represents a lot for people. Using LEGO has changed my life and the way I create my work.
Q&A With This Artist
A: I hand fabricate my work using sterling silver, LEGO bricks and diamonds. I cut, sand, drill, and sandblast each LEGO piece. After cutting into a LEGO piece I save the left over to use in various ways to create links and small elements. The sandblasting provides a matte finish on the shinny plastic toy and creates simplistic and modern feel. Each piece of jewelry from my studio is created with a passion for design and the highest standards in craftsmanship and durability. I order recycled sterling silver, previously played with LEGO, and ethically sourced diamonds through the kimberly process.
A: I am excited for the connection and possibilities LEGO provides me as an art medium to create my work. LEGO represents a lot for many people so I try and honor that with each piece. I needed to represent my experience and connection toward craftsmanship and what I consider to be my craft- for me that’s adding diamonds.Taking two very recognizable objects and putting them together to represent play and sophistication. One of the many things I love about being an artist is knowing that in a small way I’m bringing a bit of joy to people’s lives. My work has an innocence that makes the wearer smile. Our world is so frenetic and at times feels so complicated. It’s easy to forget the simple things that bring happiness.
A: People respond very well to my work and share their connection with LEGO. There are others that are drawn to my work for its playfulness, simplicity or modern design. I am very grateful for the support.
