I am a nonbinary Swedish-American artist. I make jewelry, sculpture, and functional pieces. My work stems from a fascination with the intersection of art and science, and a desire to capture the fleeting beauty of temporal organisms such as fungi, plants, and lichen in glass. I love the experimental outcomes that come with kilnformed glass. Current curiosities include mycoremediation, documenting fungi specimen, and the duality of ephemeral and archival.
