Babushka

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Babushka or Matryoshka traditionally shows a woman containing many smaller people like children inside.  I like the idea of using the same symbolism to show the idea of many people within a person, or the many different sides of a person.  The happy, sad, dark and light .  The many layers we contain.

The object is slip cast and modeled in white earthenware.

Reading between the Lines (Heart)

 

A mixture of slip cast ceramic anatomical hearts with crumpled letters.  I liked these forms  and combined them in this piece entitled ‘Reading between the Lines’.   They tell a story.   I like the fact that it may be a different story for every individual and not one of them is right or wrong.
