Using a found rusty wire coil baby mattress as the base, I hand tied strips of linen, some tea stained, around each coil and within each is a small baby mask made from wire and paper.  Looking closely at the faces you will notice that each has its own personality and is in its own little nest of linen, some more cushy than others.  Meaning resides in the concept that every person is born into different circumstances in life, some more loving and comforting than others - fate plays a role in our start in life, the rest is up to us.
