My work portrays the structure of bone, which is intricate, organic, and constantly changing. Bones are composed of two thin layers of compact bone that surround a layer of spongy bone. Spongy bone is a porous type of bone that has tiny holes. These holes provide the spaces to make bones lighter and allow muscles to move easily. More importantly, these holes contain red marrow, nerves, and blood vessels that carry cells and nutrients. The multiplicity of randomly stitched and irregularly patterned pores in my work celebrates the vibrating energy in the human body and the continuity of life.
