Description

These mugs represent the beauty that can be found in abandoned buildings, and serve as a daily reminder of those buildings. I love exploring abandoned buildings and searching for the small surprises that they often hold. I would like my mugs to bring back memories of experiences searching and exploring those buildings.

Artist Statement:

Remnants of culture, forgotten objects and spaces, are placid realms which are never truly absent after ceasing to think about them. My practice is an appraisal of the bleak, deteriorated, suggested passage of time. This is directed through the moments of beauty and peacefulness these spaces create. I see ruins as a need to explore, but find that eerie quality more evident as nature attempts to take back the ruined building.

Experiencing these ruins through exploration, finding small moments that serve as beautiful reminders of the lives once lived there, and taking that moment home to never forget the building. I strive to curate experiences. Functional ceramic work represents the moment to take home, to serve as that everyday reminder, and juxtaposes a impermanent, fading object, onto a permanent material.
