MONOLIITTI

Monoliitti is a set of blackened oak and glass containers that are an ode to figural urns. These vessels convey spiritual undertones by exploring how aesthetics can influence perception. They have been influenced by the iconography of

religious artifacts, ancient monoliths, and primitive cultures. Yet they are devoid of any connection to the dogma and rhetoric of religion, in an attempt to use objects as a vehicle of spirituality for the secular.

"No man is an island, entire of itself. Each is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.   If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less. As well as if a promontory were. As well as if a manor of thine own or of thine friend's were. Each man's death diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind. Therefore, send not to know For whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee."

- John Donne
