I am excited by ceramics once more. I am going back to clay because I am interested again in making objects. As a young artist I often felt overwhelmed by my output but now I want to mass produce multiples using slip cast forms. I want to explore the promise of consumer culture that initially got me into this strange relationship that I see as a tension between wanting and not wanting. A major difference today is that I intend to give away many of these objects in an attempt to create deeper meaning for those who connect with the work. Some of the works in the slide show are hybrid forms I am exploring, advice others are direct slip cast forms I plan to give away with the hope that others will add coins and give away and so on.
