These studios wrestled with my doubt, my sadness, my intense hesitation to continue, and my visceral hallucinations. This studio anticipates the fragile condition of loss that almost always follows the last of anything. It is not about death which is a very average concern. It is about an exchange with the sentimental. It was prompted by the historical role of Iron Jewellery when the citizens of Prussia were urged to give up their gold and silver jewellery to fund the uprising against Napolean during the War of Liberation. In exchange they were given imperfect copies made from iron.
