    Tensegrity - A sculpture of sterling silver, with sapphires held together through a floating compression technique to maintain tensional integrity. 

    6”x10”

    Tensegrity is a design principle that applies when a discontinuous set of compression elements is opposed and balanced by a continuous tensile force, thereby creating an internal prestress that stabilizes the entire structure.

    Journey of Balance - A copper vessel with a cherrywood base, held in place with magnets, 11”x5”x4”.

    This piece unearths forgotten and unfinished projects from the past and breathes fresh life into a new object that represents the multiple stages of my career as an artist.

    The base of this piece is made from cherrywood representing her roots as a carpenter, something that she has been passionate about for many years. The feather component is the first metal item she created with the use of construction materials: copper roofing sheet, stripped electrical wire, and plumbing solder. This feather was created long before the change in her career that would lead her to metal, representing an additional medium that has been added to her toolbox. The flowing wire structure is made from recycled electrical wire and represents the old flowing into the new, like a current sparking life and inspiration.  The raised copper bowl, embellished with a blue/green patina emphasizes the balance of the choices she has made, her ability to adapt and change, and her growth as a maker.

    Kaitlyn Derrah (New Brunswick College of Craft & Design): 2022 COMPETITION WINNER

    “The best ideas come from simply experimenting with materials, never quite knowing what the outcome will be but enjoying the process of combining multiple components to make art.”

    "In my work, I try to capture the feelings, sounds and visuals of the subject that inspired the piece. By using different mediums and tools to achieve the end goal, I hope that the viewer or person who interacts with the object sees the time and intention that goes into creating the work, and becomes inspired in turn."
