My series of ceramic work explores a progression of growth and a cycle of existence. It focuses on relationships between people and how the roles within them change over time as well as addressing the uncontrollable forces that make us question mankind’s existence. Everyone is on a journey to find the meaning of his or her existence and light enables us to find answers to our questions. It gives us truth, reveals hidden potential, and exposes our darkened corners. Life is a constant process of development and growth, and we are never completely done until we die.
Vulnerable Development, Nurturing Protector, Maturing Adolescence, and Yoked Community embody this journey people take when growing up, discovering who they are and becoming apart of a community.
