Fine Art. Research. Thoughts. Findings. Processes.

In March, I had the amazing opportunity to be a work study student at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina, in David Eichelberger’s Form Focus hand building class.  These works were created using bisque molds and pinching.  The pieces are finished with terra sigilata.

I was interested in extracting characteristics in existing objects, so that they resembled the original, but were not exact replicas.  I still am interested in creating more permanant versions of disposable items, as well as exploring object attachment regarding banal, ephemeral possessions.

My search for ubiquitous objects continues.
