Ripples Into the Universe

Finding Calm in Chaos

Finding Calm in Chaos

Finding Calm in Chaos combines abstract with a bust of a female figure. The piece was conceived around the time of the last presidential election when the political climate in the country, as well as stresses in my personal life were weighing heavy on my psyche. In these moments of chaos, the only reprieve was to close my eyes and take a deep breath. The sculpture captures the intake of air, paused before the release of the tumultuous events that surround the figure and shape her existence.

The piece is Ceramic fired to cone 6 oxidation with a concrete base. It is the first in a new format to abstractly represent the idea of space and time rippling; that life is complex and in constant flux. The concrete base has chipped edges and peddles condensed at the base. This adds a natural element to the display of the piece and shows the wear of time.

Infinite II

The clay pieces twist and turn into the form of the infinity symbol. Each smaller component interweaves to form a larger whole; becoming indistinguishable where one begins and another ends. The piece rests above an ultracal base with streaks of brown throughout. This base mimics sedimentary rock with layers built over time.

This ceramic piece is fired to cone 6 with a combination of glaze and a cold finish. The twisting form curls inward and implies a constant motion. It is the first piece in the Ripples into the Universe Series.
