Laughable Loves

The works in the Laughable Loves Series were made in reflection around the time I lived and worked in the Czech Republic (1997-99), teaching at the Academy of Art, Architecture, and Design in Prague. As a metalsmith, I create works that play with the traditional processes and typologies of my discipline, but with an added twist of content. Laughable Loves refers to the English literary translation of the collection of short stories (Směšné lásky) by Czech author Milan Kundera.

Some are openly erotic, yet layered with a range of psychological associations and a good bit of Czech black humor.
