This collection has been influenced by my heritage and the cultural interactions found in others of a similar lineage. Each piece has been created with textures and rawness, drawing emphasis on the natural elements found on this earth. They deconstruct all of us in a matter that paints us as equals from a sedimentary perspective. Inspired from Taino and Cono tribe traditions, all have been constructed through the actions of my ancestors. Dishes have been created in unison with the techniques of traditional corn flour recipes. Mugs and large bowls have been inspired by baskets originally woven by my African ancestry.
