The Sentinel drawings are part of a series of 12 charcoal drawings that stand 5 foot tall, human-like in the space. They depict the cream ladle nestled in the gravy ladle of twelve silver tableware patterns sold by the company Replacements, Ltd in Greensboro, North Carolina, where I was an Artist in Residence.
A customer at Replacements inspired the drawings. She had brought in pieces of silver with the goal of identifying its pattern and buying a few replacement pieces for the set. Through the conversation with the replacements staff, it was reveled that she had never owned a gravy ladle (larger)—only a cream ladle (slightly smaller).
The customer was shocked and upset that she had been serving gravy with a cream ladle for almost 20 years. She promptly bought a gravy ladle. The Sentinel drawings are about the power that objects can have over us.
