The Hanger Collection
Beginning with a transformative interpretation of clothing hangers, this contemplative project seeks to visualise a sense of intimacy with and between objects.
By focusing on the two essential elements of coat hangers – wood and metal – and experimenting with techniques such as carving, threading and sculpting, a transformative journey is undergone as the maker gradually adapts to her material.
The incorporation of carved wooden beads explores the boundaries between jewellery and sculpture, inviting viewers to engage more closely with the items, through touch, and to relate to their own journeys of self-transformation.
