The first thing Redd makes from this cardboard box is a fort. He uses a blanket and a ball, which he collected previously, shown in the last piece. This piece symbolizes how creating can become a safe house for artists and how comfortable creating can be.
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.
