This work explores ceremonial objects of adornment. It is not the reason for the ceremony that I find interesting; rather, the objects that universally signify some kind of shift or memorable moment in one's life. Whether public or private, these occasions can be articulated and memorialized through the presence of a decorative totem.
RiTUAL. A ceremonial act ~ Rites used in the course of worship ~ The performance of ceremonial acts ~ The prescribed form of conducting the ceremony ~ A method of procedure that is followed without variation ~ performance with gestures, words, and objects, often in a sequestered place.
