This body of work acknowledges a complexity of emotions that exist in a domestic context, specifically the comfort and restriction of kinship. I explored this idea by recreating objects from the home that draw nostalgic associations and allow the exploration of distant memories. Memories fade and fluctuate over time.  I was interested in the relationship between memory and individual identity within a group dynamic. 
 This work intentionally portrays evidence of the making process, allowing for the malleability of clay to depict time, movement, and human emotion. It transitions my personal history into the present.
