  Material Biases are a series of sculptures predicated on the idea that the word ‘material’ itself is a bias that implies that matter is ‘for human use.’ Each piece probes a material bias that I hold as an artist, which is discovered through what I intuitively choose to do with the materials I am engaging (i.e. carving waste plaster into a bone, or heating broken glass into geologic stones). They are playful material discoveries that act as condensed installations, with the precious intimacy of a worry stone in your pocket. The materials list comprehensively tracks the chemical composition of each piece, which has been made almost exclusively from waste materials.
