The Vintage Button Series is a metaphorical exploration of a mother's journeying efforts of 'keeping it all together'. Sifting and gleaning pieces from various generations of button collections, then hand sculpting and casting them larger than life reflects the process of everything discovered, pondered, and endured on the journey of motherhood.  Each button, seemingly a portrait,  honors the mothers before us, and the stories and memories that shaped their lives.
