Vantias: A Series

Sterling silver, red tigers eye, brecciated jasper, spessartite garnet, red garnet. 2022.
This series commemorates my late father and visually symbolizes his impact on my life. After he passed I was repeatedly visited by a cardinal, which have long been known as messengers from heaven. Unintentionally, a cardinal has become a symbol of the sense of protection my father had given me, but also a reminder of the way my life has changed since he’s been gone. It’s a bittersweet subject because I lost one of the most important people in my life, but the events and decisions that followed are the reason I am where I’m at right now.
I was awarded a FOCUS grant from Iowa State University for $600 to complete this project.
