TOOTH HOUSE, 2021

Teeth are a recurring symbol in my work. They represent the human element in the relationship between human and non-human. Usually, when we die we are buried. Our teeth and bones become part of the land as one. I like the idea that we become part of the earth. As TOOTH HOUSE dies, she will become part of the land.

It encompasses the theme of 'Ruination' and Entropy as it decomposes over time. Creating a relationship between the sculpture and the land it's situated, it is a ruin of Mên-an-tol. The land's rich history and mythic qualities are experimented with through the use of video and sound.

Trinket Boots, 2021

Left boot size 7, Right boot size 6.5

air drying clay, acrylic, lacquer

Trinket Boots, 2021 is part of a series called TOOTH HOUSE Trinkets. They represent repetitive symbols in my work. The split-toe boots and cowboy hat are used as an accessory in the narratives I have created. Walk in muddy boots up to TOOTH HOUSE. The gills and skeletal fish designs on the side of the boots are seen in several other works. The boots are another 'prop' that combines elements of the human and non-human.
