Mixed Media Button Sculpture.Much of my sculpture involves stitching objects which are normally not sewn such as toy ovens or ironing boards. For two generations my family made a living with needle and thread, my grandmother sewing ties, my parents dinette sets and boat cushions. They covered the traditional territory; I am fascinated by the thought of sewing what is not normally sewn. In April of 1996, I was invited to the Buchenwald Memorial on the site of the former concentration camp, to install my piece Remembrance, which was acquired for the permanent collection of the museum, and to participate in the 51st anniversary of the liberation of the camp. An exhibit at the Memorial which made a strong impression on me was the long, narrow display case with hundreds of buttons, fragments of clothing, dentures, pieces of eyeglasses and other remnants of the incomprehensible suffering which occurred at Buchenwald. These tiny objects conveyed a sense of the vanished lives which the charts, documents and archival photographs could not. When I returned, I began a series of sculptures and installations based on the remnants in the display case.
