Just posted photos from the new look book shoot on the "collection" tab. Go check it out!
In the past few months I have become interested in beadwork and exploring other materials and metals. I was going through a book I received of handmade and ancient beads quite a lot. I started experimenting with ceramics. When Jimmy Nelsons project Before They Pass came out I was totally blown away by it. This lead to the concept of Tribe. It is a collection of pieces with various tribes of the world (more specifically those in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia) in mind. I wanted to take the "siren" from last season and move her from the sea inland. I imagined her exchanging shells and other treasures from the sea for trade beads and tribal artifacts.
