Resin & Fiber Sculpture - Born Again

Regular price $624.00

Born Again began life as a more-simple, sculptural bowl which collapsed under high-heat duress while on it's way to an art-show. When I brought the collapsed bowl back to my studio, I discovered that I could carefully heat it and re-form it.  I then merged that original bowl with other silk and resin pieces to create this large, ethereal flower.  Born Again is one of the largest Re-FEM pieces I have made to date - and one of my personal favorites because it is a great example of failures being an opportunity for learning.

Going through this "structural failure event" helped me innovate a new sculptural process. That process is now referred to as the Re-FEM process - or "Resinous Fibers Emergent Method©™"
