Tipping Point

Ceramic, 2017, 5"w x 8"h x 5"d

There is power in a functional object. It transforms how we interact with it and relate to our world. This power in objects has always been something thats stood behind me in my work. Tipping Point serves as an instance where form and function do not yield a direct, physical use. Instead, the form and honesty to material show the messiness that accompanies the process of creation. The piece shows perseverance in the midst of its own uncertainty and chaos. Its ability to expose a vulnerable honesty and truth, without leaving the viewer an endnote, grants it a therapeutic function.
