Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Annie's House

Abstract (Summary)

My thesis project focused on the investigation of ceramic processes for architectural and public art. After several attempts to find a public site for my thesis exhibition, I consulted with my landlord, Mary Jean Friel, about using select exterior surfaces of her house and grounds in Long Beach as the site for my thesis exhibition. This body of work is a permanent collection of low and high relief ceramic door and window surrounds, in addition to a sixteen foot wall installation. The back wall of the property houses the ceramic environmental installation that includes imagery and a fabricated brick throne upon which to sit and view the garden. The conception, planning, execution, and installation of this exhibition prepared me for future public or private works.
