My Father's Teeth

This series was conceived a contemplation of the relationship I have with my father. It is an investigation into prescribed value, monetary and sentimental and how idiosyncrasies and character traits are passed down from old to young. By juxtaposing the crystal casting with their original tooth counterparts, the formal qualities they possess begin to come to light, while their functional purpose of mastication wanes. While the two objects, tooth and crystal replica, starkly differ in colour, optical qualities, texture and weight, they are fundamentally linked and one is unmistakably the product of the other.
