ceramic, 2014, 4"w x 5"h x 3"d

Ceramics were traditionally used to contain things such as water, food, objects and other items. In its raw state, clay’s mutability allows it to be molded into a shape and then fired to preserve that shape. This piece does not lend itself to contain anything substantial; it was made as a container for light. Fragile and delicate, the piece contains light but also leaks it in order to create shadow. The durable and accommodating ceramic material becomes graceful and light as it holds something intangible and elusive.

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.
