"Play is the free spirit of exploration- doing and being for its own pure joy."    
-Stephen Nachmanovitch

 

I'm fascinated by materials curled by the effect of time, boasting the articulation of use and wear from life past. Its beauty is so rich. I recreate this look of aging afresh, in food ironically, abusing my decorative sugar surfaces with a delicate hand, pushing the sugar's potential for that richness beyond what I've previously known or seen, forging textures that play with light and shadow. Each cake shows me something new.
