PAST PROJECTS

   

Connection Table, 2013
Mills College, Oakland, CA

I made this table and stools from recycled formica and 2x4's while thinking about inspiring connection. I set the table up outside and in my studio and invited people to sit with me or each other and connect. It works!...tea, conversation, tarot, writing, and all sorts of things have happened...
