Found Object Assemblages

Gwen credits her father’s habit of tossing ‘all things deemed unnecessary’ for her deep need to covet and collect almost everything. She worked in his ceramics studio for 10 years, but never felt that it was the medium by which she wanted to express herself. She discovered her voice in found objects, which she likens to painting in 3D. Often she will have three or four pieces going at the same time in her studio. Some start with an idea that seeks objects to express it. Others start with an object, or several objects, that scream to be put together.
