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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
