The Object of Tertiary Contact series was created using the ceramic body casts from my previous work as molds. The resulting forms reproduce the cavities of the lifecasting plaster molds which female bodies once occupied. The multilayered surfaces seduce the viewer to touch while simultaneously creating fragile barriers which deny the most intimate tactile experience. In my work, I create the forms about the absence of forms and the surface about the denial of touch.
