Just finished this one! She’ll be off to her new home soon and I will once again have grocery money.
Second tile to potentially live in this beautiful rusted gasket. We’ll see after all is said and fired ;)
Found an awesome rusty thing today. This baby is the first of two tiles I made to potentially be framed by it. Unfired as of yet. Stay tuned!

Update on this bad boy- there’s prints for sale now! Go to my society6 to nab one
The word loss brings different things to mind for different people. Obviously losing one’s keys is not the same as losing a loved one, but a single idea encompasses the range of these experiences. I am attempting to give others an opportunity to think about a loss they’ve experienced, and creating models of these objects, people, or ideas. While born from my own musings about loss, Lost and Found has become a vehicle for exploring ideas of value and preciousness. After all, the value of an object or memory is perceived as much greater once it is lost, and through loss one discovers what it is they value.
I’ve written about this project in its earliest form before. Essentially, I am looking for stories of loss to build upon the archive that I have already collected. Originally I wanted to have some kind of personal interaction with everyone involved, but I am hoping that this way I can reach more people and give the project a wider scope.
If you’d like to contribute to this project, please send an email to to email@example.com with the subject “Lost and Found” the following information:
1) Your name or pseudonym
2) A story of something you’ve lost. This can be a single word or several sentences, whatever your inclination is. It doesn’t need to require a great deal of thought (unless you want it to!) and can be the first thing that comes to mind.
3) A mailing address. I will keep all the addresses I receive private. Should you wish to withhold that information for the time being that’s absolutely fine, but upon the project’s completion I am planning to send all of the participants a piece of the project, so please consider it.
4) Whether or not you would like to receive updates on the project. (This blog is where I have been posting my academic writing on my progress, if anyone is interested. I also plan to post on this blog).
Any contributions are sincerely appreciated! And by all means, tell anyone you think would be interested in participating.
Hey friends and followers! This is my good friend Jo’s work- definitely going to be an awesome show this December! She’d love your participation in the project :)
