Collection: ABOUT Andree

 

I am always curious about plant forms. When I find a particular form that inspires me, I record it with drawings, and then start to build. Typically, I use wax as my medium because I can melt it, build with it, then file and sand it. I have used the same tools throughout my career, whether it be small jewelry piece cast in sterling and gold, or currently four foot sculptures that will eventually be cast in clay, like stoneware and porcelain, or bronze. The mold can get an exact duplicate of the original piece.

I have been to two artist residencies in the New England woods. While there, I would start my day by walking on the trails, to be enriched by the environment. This would lead to a studio day of creating abstract sculptures influenced by my surroundings. The forms are generally influenced by the season, bare branch forms, or full rich movement. I am developing this group of work into a collection called Leaves of Durham
