Sculpture, sculptural jewelry & creative kitchenware
by Christen Bouffard.
My work is informed by my experiences living in an environment of extremes. It is a reflection on the beauty of that natural world, and reaction to the unique surprises I’ve encountered while living in the Interior Alaska. I am also curious in the forces that bring us to the places we inhabit. Mapping and wayfinding conventions are interesting lenses through which to view these journeys.
My objects usually take shape from metal, stone, and glass – things with weight and tactile qualities – with the intention that people will want to hold, use or wear them.
