Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Facetacks season one: A narrative on ceramic vessels
by Rees, Kyle, M.F.A., East Carolina University, 2013, 34; 1539030
Abstract (Summary)

This written report addresses the narrative objects created in the completion of the Master of Fine Arts degree. These objects consist of utilitarian porcelain pottery in the form of stacked cups, coffee sets, and tea sets. Comical stories on the surface of the stacks borrow the format commonly seen on television shows and are about a protagonist named Face. The coffee and tea sets are covered with imagery representing amusing commercials for fictional products that exist in Face's world. This creative thesis is a synthesis of the utilitarian object, popular media, and my own sense of humor.
