Potion Series

This work grew naturally from my obsession with small vessels and my love, fascination, and research into folklore and the occult. While much of my work braids together eclectic sources of inspiration, I find the practice of magick -- “magick” relating to the occult, as opposed to “magic” which is the performance of illusions and sleight of hand -- as rich grounds for my interest in sacred and ceremonial objects to take root. The potion became the first landing place for my exploration of this theme because the use of potions as they are depicted in varying and countless narratives ranges from the miraculous boon to the "deal with the devil."
