Containment

A wooden backpack made from an altered set of found drawers and strapping. This backpack hold tools for foraging, and smaller boxes to hold delicate things I find.

This is a hand woven wool pouch with animal tooth as a clasp. The first several pouches in this series are made from animal bodies, all of which were used out of respect. All were scraps and fragments that would have been carelessly discarded otherwise. All were found through waste streams, not bought.

leather pouches with bone buttons alongside pieces if paper with an internal dialogue written on them. This is my own conscious attempting to reconcile my use of animal bodies in my work.
