Artist Statement

Through making, Elaine Zukowski discovers and pursues the ability to see common objects in a new way. This composition fuses unique handcrafted buttons with several layers of scrap metal to form a slightly asymmetrical composition. The buttons alone, unattached to a garment, are free to become singular objects and viewed outside the parameters of function. A once discarded and now reclaimed coated steel can lid is another functional object waiting to live another life. In juxtaposition, these round forms become a brooch that is worn as adornment. Setting the buttons in tall bezels sets them apart as precious objects that elevate the humble can to a new status.
