First thing you ever made: “The first object I remember considering — or at least that’s had a lasting impression on me — is a Native American clay pot my great-grandmother collected while traveling in New Mexico in the early 1900s. I also remember the way it was aligned with other objects in the house, including a wooden mirror frame and a strange photograph of rope and netting, which I thought was terrifying as it looked like dead animals. All of these things sat on a brick fireplace in my early childhood home."
