Ceramics: Autobiographical House
Clay Body: Soldate
Glazes: Cone 05 Deep Turquoise Crackle Opaque and Cone 05 Western White Satin Matte
The assignment was to create an autobiographical house, and I initially wanted to instead create a triptych to hang on the wall which would chronicle all the cities and states my family had been stationed in while my dad was in the U.S. Coast Guard. However, I didn't have time to create the ceramic decals for each panel and want more time to ruminate on completing such a project. Instead I created my dream atelier...a tiny barn for doing yoga or even better--a ceramics studio. I plan on putting tea lights in this house and displaying it next to my clear glass candleholders.
