dc.description.abstract[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] My sculptural work is comprised of tool-like objects of unknown utility. Each object is made up of materials traditionally used both in Art and Craft contexts, and are reminiscent of hand tools, but whose purpose is obscured, or even unknowable. By displaying them on Shaker-inspired peg rails, inherently utilitarian fixtures and non-sequiturs in a gallery context, each installation blurs the line between the functional and non-functional. These objects aim to problematize how hand tools, and by implication the handiwork skills they require, are appraised in today's society.eng
