A Boy and a Box: Discovering
Stoneware with Glaze
9” x 4.5” x 4.5”
The first piece in the series begins with the discovery of the box which leads to further discovery in the joy of creating. I believe there is a human desire for discovery and that we are inherently creative.
The ceramic vessel series “A Boy and a Box” expresses the journey of a creative child named Redd who makes new things from a discarded cardboard box. This series illustrates the joy of discovery and is reflective of my own craft. In this series, I am using the vessel to serve as the containment of an idea. My ideas about the space between the lost and the found are both about discovery of the unknown and also about the journey of finding meaning.
