The Strange Mineral Series developed out of my desire to waste nothing. Over the past 10 years I have created multiple bodies of work using post-consumer plastics and plastic fragments that I collect along the Pacific Coast. Not only am I endlessly challenged to rework these existing materials but I also save the scraps and off-cuts from the transformations.
I liken these earrings to imagined minerals - gems of the future strata layers that mark our Anthropozoic era. Each pair is collaged, heated and fused; a result of my philosophy and determination to turn the meanest scraps into something of value.
