I think of this work as a synthesis – that is, putting a whole together from parts.  Seeing a mass of stainless steel pots, pans, dog bowls and hubcaps used to make art, shifts the reference point of the world of objects we know, to something new and unexpected. This sculpture makes us look at commonplace objects differently and as a result, we may ponder the redundancy of our consumer-based culture and what that means for our society and for the environment.
