Abstract

This project was done through the C. Farrell Fine Arts and Research Scholarship. Each ceramic vessel explores the idea of home and family through botanical imagery. The project combines the two through the idea of foundations, a foundation becomes a starting place. The home itself, the relationships, the experiences, everything that happened there is significant to who this person is. It is similar for plants, their roots are the foundation for all that they are or could be. Each ceramic piece has a plant on it to represent a specific trait, all of these come together to create the family. The serving dishes and pouring vessels are more universal, those plants represent something that is essential to the family as a whole. The materials used in this project also have a connection to nature, clay is a mix of finelygrained rocks and other organic material. This clay was picked for its darker color to resemble soil. The plants were carved into each piece to add texture. This project focused on family relationships and our connection to earth.
