In the idealized home, each room serves a specialized function, and the placement of objects within them correlates to the jewelry worn on specific areas of the body. For example, an object placed in a dining room must relate to the action and ceremony within, as a ring is a response to the hand.
The idea, function, and necessity of the home is formless in consideration of time, place, and class. Navigating contemporary life involves negotiating a place for yourself within it. The objects we place in our homes serve as the ritual tools we use to accomplish this. The 'Helve' series are wooden pieces that are made to hang on the wall or sit on a table.
