Jess Tolbert | El Paso, TX
zinc-plated steel safety pin, sterling silver
4.5" x 1.5" x .5"
2015

Reconsidering the materials and products of mass production as raw material, I create wearable objects that explore humanity’s ever changing relationship to the built environment, the making and use of everyday spaces, and value. When reimagined as raw material and manipulated by a skilled hand, a transformation takes place. This shift fuses the functional and decorative, the everyday, memory, and imagination. At a moment when our culture is increasingly face-paced, consumeristic, and accustomed to objects that are disposable, this timely investigation focuses on the merits of repair and reinvention as a creative act.

Additional shipping, tax and service fees apply. Shipping fee to be quoted by artist.
