“The jet jewelry that were models for my drawings were made during the mid to late 19th century carved by hand from jet, a fossilized material similar to coal but more durable. They were worn during a woman’s period of mourning after the death of a loved one when wearing conventional precious jewelry would have been deemed inappropriate… Rendered as large drawings they become abstracted, transcending their history and meaning and become ominous objects of unknown origin.”-Jonathan Wahl
