Lorelei Esser

Creating form from energy that has been dormant, lost or fallen from an animal or tree, from the sea, washed up and breaking down, man-made materials left behind to rust, rot, or wear away, making it’s way, rock to grain, to the eternal. These things that we see as lifeless are in a constant state of change and gradual movement.
I gather wood, stone, plastic, metal, glass, paper, rubber, peeled paint, any material that I can read into the story. I design by form and find, and I am amazed at what is revealed in the process, the energy has come together from the memory of what once was, a purpose, a sentimental journey, an attachment to us.
