Stoneware with Glaze
7" x 4.5" x 5"
Lycosidae features a larger-than-life wolf spider attached to a curved vessel. I chose to enlarge the figure for my fear of spiders, which make them appear bigger and scarier to me than reality. The glazing for this piece is inspired the nature of a wolf spider for both its coloring and preference of habitat.
Symbiosis is a visual commentary on the relationship between self and environment. The vessels act as a manmade element while each of the attached ornaments, inspired by local species, compliment the shape and movement of each piece. Each work reflects the impressionable and impactful nature of how mankind interacts with the natural world, and vice versa.
