I thought I would start to share some of the things I made in my ceramics class last semester. I was desperately bogged down with three studio classes at once PLUS life. I commend anyone who can do all of that with ease and grace, it ain't me.
This is just one small piece of a much larger work. I did a series of shrines for my final project, each of them personal, intimate, and all about my journey in life.
She is only about 4.5 inches tall, and I haven't unpacked her base yet, a tower of wood blocks that adds about 5 inches. See the holes in the hand area? Yeah. The hands I made to be attached with wire were lost in the kiln somehow, some way. I need to think of a creative solution.
How cute is that little side bun?! I love the way I feel when I wear my hair that way so I thought it would be a nice detail for the mini-me.
I bound her in a cloth tape measure because no matter how confident I am, no matter what kind of talk I give myself, or energy I put out in the universe, I still feel bound by society because of my size.
I know, I know, I need to get over it, and I am working on it in a couple of ways, one: focusing on health, not size, and two: working on listening to my body, NOT everything else!
I'm so excited to shart sharing these things I've made again, I look forward to hearing from you!
