Being a design student at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, I have developed a love for all mediums, especially those capable of three-dimensional presentations. I am fixated on the notion that simplicity is key to good design; however, when I construct with my hands, I feel the need to be intricate with my work. This piece was created in order to display that intricacy and reveal a cultural aspect to its viewers. It was shaped from terra cotta using my hands and a wide range of miscellaneous tools. The dark glaze veiling its surface is a way for a us to appreciate its many details.
