Sordid Objects of Decadence and Domesticity

About this project

Sordid Objects are usually dismissed and poorly considered; the skill of their manufacture overlooked in daily life…needles, knives, scissors are all used with little understanding of their complexity.  By making them out of special steel and turning them into objects of practical beauty they are elevated into objects that are worthy of closer examination and study.
