This body of work is a response to my treks through the Alaskan wilderness to visit rapidly melting glaciers and a curiosity about our environment. My Master of Fine Arts project exhibition, Memories of Vanishing Things, presents monumental ceramic sculptures that use landscape and the figure as a reflection on our relationship to the natural world. I was interested in creating an experience of form and space that the viewer could touch, peer into, sit next to, and encounter from various perspectives. I also aspired to create a contemplative experience, and one that the viewer might connect symbolically to landscape and environment.
