Collection: Cartrageous

“Cartrageous" began evolving as a series over the past decade. Impacted by the people I have met and the children I have worked with over the past 30 years, I came to understand how the shopping cart represents the arc of our consumer culture. My latest series, 3-D printed jewelry is an outgrowth of the shopping cart furniture series I began in 2008. As with each piece of furniture, I derive pleasure through the design challenge: "what else can I do with this shape:" Intended to be playful and fun the jewelry, like the furniture, is developed with a deeper intention. Those who purchase work from the Cartrageous series can find joy while giving twice - 15% of proceeds are donated to a local soup kitchen with each purchase. Because I and the people who work with T3B, LLC believe giving doesn’t have to be limited to a holiday or special event.

HONORING OUR HOMELESS

Cartrageous donates 20% of profits to a local soup kitchen, Feast Incarnate.

The mission of Feast Incarnate is to feed the hungry and welcome the stranger in an atmosphere of mutual respect and fellowship. We do this by serving a meal every Tuesday at 5pm to people who are food insecure. In contrast to the more conventional “soup kitchen approach” where meals are served cafeteria-style, our aim is to provide a healthy, hearty, comfortable meal served on china by volunteers to our guests who are seated. Feast began with a meal for 8 people 30 years ago and has grown to serving 80 to 120 every week.

Feast Incarnate is a volunteer-driven organization physically based in facilities at University Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, located at 3637 Chestnut Street. Each week, a different area congregation or agency provides food for the meal, and volunteers from student service organizations at Penn and Drexel participate as servers at virtually every meal.
