Pyre (2012)

15 feet high by 6 feet diameter on floor

This installation combines a ring of ceramic leaves, colored like blood, with a hanging chain that is weighed down with a variety of handmade forms based on weights and pendulums that have been altered and cast in red wax, ceramic slip and translucent red glass.

The ring of leaves refers to the cycles of life and death while evoking a funeral pyre. The pendulums and weights refer to the passing of time in all its complexity.
