Based on memories from wandering the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania.
The design and simplicity of the cabinets makes them perfect for decoration and showcasing small intimate objects.
Push Home Pull Home, River
Currently on display at The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va.
The push/pull drawer references the pushing and pulling between two places a person may consider home. The only way to open the drawer on one side the opposite end must be interacted with, just as a new home requires an old home. The form of the bent lamination comes from a bend in the Roanoke River, running through downtown Roanoke, Va. On the top an outline of the city limits is carved into the face
Using a repetitive bent wood form to outline spaces for "pockets" or cavities which can hold sentimental objects. The objects inside the cabinet give it life and meaning to the viewer.
