3 - D
These projects explore the idea of creation as I push the boundaries of ceramics to develop a connection between my two-dimensional and three-dimensional work.
Fix the Clock
Fix the Clock (2021)
clay, pigment, silver paint, and found objects
My inner dialogues and conflicts guide the theme of this project. I desired a feeling of instability and collected chaos to illustrate my thoughts and emotions during the second half of my sophomore year. The transition to a new sense of "normal" with familiar, yet new ways of interacting with school and life placed me in a loop where I constantly felt the need to "catch up" as I never felt like I had enough time to process my surroundings. The broken clock is a reminder of my idealizations that fell short and my dissatisfaction with how I used my time during this moment in my life.
Let it Out
Let It Out (2021)
clay, chalk, cone 6 glaze
For this project, I wanted to start a conversation and have people make thoughtful considerations when interacting with my mirrors. Regardless of who held the mirror, I wanted them to see past the presence of their physical selves and look deeper to address their emotional selves. I find that people spend too much time trying to "catch up" or "fit into" life, thus they fail to take a break and regard all that is taking place around them. We as people tend to pile on thoughts and emotions that are never released. In turn, I made mirrors to serve as a vessel of communication and release; a way to let go or share whatever a person may be holding onto.
Pottery: Mugs (2021)
clay, underglaze, cone 6 glaze
To expand my knowledge of wheel throwing and mug making, I decided to experiment with carving, patterning and adding sculptural elements to each vessel.
