      I would reflect on your consideration some more. If possible, do grad school now, spring!

    Passage

    From the album: Sample Work

    The concept for Passage is based on climate, and more specifically bringing the scope of climate within the personal scale. I wanted to create something that offered the viewer a unique experience in person which has been one of the challenges of representing it in pictures. Each individual feather is able to move and in mass, this movement creates sound. Seemingly simple, there are a total of about 4000 pieces, each of varying size and strategically placed to create a sense of dept, currents, and the complexity of global climactic systems. Another thing I set out to accomplish was to c

    Blossom

    From the album: Sample Work

    12"x10"x10" 2011 porcelain, wire, epoxy, foam cone 9 oxidation The foundation of the pieces in my Wind series consist of these very small, paper thin pieces of colored clay that are glued on to wire. I call them feathers for lack of a better term but they are often associated with leaves, seeds, and petals. Wanting to work on a smaller scale, incorporate a back light to increase the translucency, and play with color, and I came up with Blossom. Since the construction of each petal is the same there is still the same movement and sound create with the introduction of air flow (win

    From the album: Sample Work

    24"x9"x8" 2011 porcelain, wire, foamcore, epoxy Cone 9 oxidation This is part on my Wind Series. I'm essientially just playing with format, light, and color. I was trying to capture movement in a much smaller area. In the piece Passage, I had a much larger area to work with creating movement and flow, but it is difficult to create so many pieces just to do that. I was hoping to be able to do it with a few hundred instead of a fiew thousand.

    32"x24"x18" cone 04 multiple firings 2010 Tackling the human figure, especially the face, seemed like a guareented fail. I thought of it as this really hard thing that I would only be able to do after years of practice. Then I had an assignment that required me to take a historical form and recreate it in a conemtorary context and I thought of George. My background in archeology had led me to reasearch on Tang Dynasty ceramics. It is a time period I am very familiar with including their vocabulary of form. During this period, tomb guardians were common and consisted of two main type

    Thanks Marcia. I add mason stains to southern ice porcelain. Each piece is rolled out by hand twice so it's transparent and also cut twice. They are fired to cone 9 oxidation. I insert them into styrofoam that has been hollowed out. I add flameless tealights inside.
