cast off

 Here are some finished projects from my ceramics course in sculpture this past semester.

"Cast Off"
Two shards of faces, eyes from a vacant identity. They belong together but cannot be connected. The wheels on their backs allude to the shards' potential mobility, but prevent them from aligning. They cannot see each other, but they cannot move on their own.

"Reliquary for a Field"
Project assignment: create a ceremonial vessel using coils.
A reliquary is an object that houses holy relics, mostly used in medieval European cathedrals. They are used to remember and honor saints from the past (sometimes holding bits of their bones and hair). My reliquary houses a small grassy field. I haven't lived in a place with a lawn in over five years, and I've really been missing it. This reliquary allows me to keep that memory.
The grass was planted and grown within the vessel.
