The Underground Food Collective here in Madison, Wisconsin, has been a staple supporter of my work since when I was first showing the cast iron skillets of the Midwest in their restaurant. Their friendship with my studio work is something magical, indeed. It’s where the slow-foodie-nation meets DIY artist, and they contributed not only their glorious space and great camaraderie with me, but also a whopping 28.3 #’s of grass fed goat + pork fat to season all 48 state shaped skillets for ArtPrize !
Let’s just say, my piece now has aromatic nuances that recall a hunger for bacon ! Hahaa!
It’s pretty intense !
