Through the making of objects that invite interaction and interpretation, Mary explores gesture and the relationship between maker and the object.

Her work examines the connections linking language and hand, its sense of touch, the mechanics of the hand and its capacity for subtlety or force.

Using copper and steel to achieve these aims, Mary has made objects sympathetic to the hand. These objects extend limits of material employing techniques that expose the objects manufacture.
