Intertwined: Conversations of a Tea Set

red oak, tea set, yarn

2007

This piece speaks to the delicate nature of family dynamics and the honesty of underlying emotions. The tea set is delicately and methodically wrapped in yarn, with each cup perched high upon its stand. All are tied together with a delicate balance, with one stand just slightly tipped and balancing on 2 legs. If anything is disrupted, the entire sculpture could come crashing down. This beautiful scene on the surface has a very strong tension - just like when we’re trying to be cordial, but everyone else knows its a lie.
