“My interest in casting lace concrete forms is derived from my recent and current body of work that incorporates lace and ceramic form. I wanted to combine the delicate nature of lace with the harsh durability and weight of concrete. The decorative lace texture combined with the contrast of blue and white refers to domestic ware but also allows one to see the forms in a different way.  These cast forms are combined with rebar, emphasizing an industrial and construction context. I am also excited to experiment with larger forms in an outdoor public setting. In this way, my work can engage more viewers for longer periods of time.The title, “Infra-,“ is derived from Latin meaning under or below. Besides being the prefix of infrastructure, I also take it as a way to connote what is there but not seen; what is taken for granted.
