About

Virginia blends mate­ri­als such as wood, metal and concrete which are inte­grated into sculp­tural pieces that can be func­tional or simply aesthetic. Her work­shop is located in rural Knox County, Ohio where her wood is salvaged from locally sourced trim­mings that are cut from decom­posed or natu­rally fallen trees. She draws inspi­ra­tion for her designs from the char­ac­ter of decay and dete­ri­o­ra­tion and captures these processes by slicing or carving into, to reveal the unique beauty of each piece of wood. My work is about the harmony that happens when you juxta­pose raw organic shapes with sleek geomet­ric forms. It’s about balanc­ing the mate­ri­als and the beauty in the simplicity.’
