Brian Connolly never understood why he was told that the soap shaped like a seashell was not for washing hands, or the fancy dipped candles from the amusement park were not for burning. These things didn’t make sense at age five, and they still don’t make sense to him today. In an attempt to bring sense back into the world, Brian Connolly explores ways to make functional objects that challenge preciousness, convincing others to experience the joy in using items of beauty and curiosity through the purposes in which they were intended.
