Walking is an important part of Jesse’s life, it’s during these times when he processes thoughts about new work, and takes close observation of plant life and its designs which influence his work. During his daily walks is also when he finds himself collecting cast-off or used materials which finds its way into his work. For this reason there is a representation of feet. A stomach is the principal form and element of the brooch because since he can remember, Jesse’s stomach is in one way or another affected by his joys of cooking and eating, or his emotional and cognitive process.
