“The drawings are almost impossibly delicate, the images tender and a bit melancholy. The jewelry is modest in scale, devoid of the aggressive ambition that declares that bigness equates with importance. They are not heroic. Instead, they are sweet and intimate. But there are also elements of strangeness and barely suppressed eroticism, which together throw the sweetness off kilter. Considered closely, these objects are slightly disorienting, as if you had entered your own home to find all the furniture moved.” -Bruce Metcalf
