Artwork > Not Your Grandmother's Breakfront

In my youth, I spend time admiring my grandmother's collection of ceramic figurines, crystal sculptures and other smaller sculptures in her breakfront. From time to time I also was able to dust these objects carefully, and take a closer look their details, and surfaces. Each on of her pieces was linked to a memory of a time when it was her birthday, or a happy memory shopping or visit from a friend. Each sculpture held more than just the face value. In this series of one offs, I am using vintage molds to create my own stories in clay. In this work I am playing with composition of characters, and color to create non traditional vignettes.
