Redd decides to create with the box, so he begins to collect other materials to help him in his creative journey. We see him struggling to pull a wagon full of his materials. This is symbolic of the process of beginning when sometimes the task seems bigger than the artist.
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.
