Mala Mala


     Mala means long necklace or flower garland in Hindi. Malas also refer to prayer necklaces. These talismanic malas are reflective of the internal feelings of fracture, fragmentation and confusion that accompanies difficult circumstances. Sometimes buttresses appear to help support or to increase strength. The works speak to complications, entanglements and obstacles. Their beauty is in their vulnerability, their refined rawness, the delicate yet brittle edges, crushed solids. These malas encircle the wearer, armor for exposed vulnerabilities.
