The Saponification of Madame X

The Saponification of Madame X

I’ll admit it – I learned about soap making in 1999 while watching fight club. I have been an artist my whole life but always turned away from making practical things. Excellent idea – lets drag out this starving artist thing as LONG as possible…but soap…something intrigued me about this process… Zoom forward 17 years…into my abrupt retirement from academia – I thought it was time to pick up where I left off with soap. I had been making home and skincare products for myself for 8 years but maintained a fear of lye specifically connected to a cinematic kiss…now...

INTRODUCING OOliva!

INTRODUCING OOliva!

I am happy to introduce my latest project...OOliva! OOliva has humble beginnings in the picking apart of daisies and pussy willows and reforming the elements with mud and water. Some might call this a mudpie but I like to think of it as preparing my first spa treatment. While growing up I was ever curious about what I could pull from the fridge, mix up and use as a facial mask. I have always been a choosy eater so there was something satisfying about harnessing ingredients that I would not dare to taste but could use in my beauty regimen....
