 I have a tear catcher dated from the 1800’s that makes me wonder about its back story every time I run my fingers over the inscription which reads J.J. to M.W. March 26 1818. This was in part the inspiration behind the ‘Gardener’s Valentines,' also loosely based on sailor’s valentines. Exploring relationship is not new to my work, but I've set myself the task of making heirlooms. As artists we watch as collections make their way to the secondary market. I am curious to explore what makes an object dear; dear enough that it transcends the original owners, and acquires its own magic.
