I view the human body as a container, a corporeal transportation device for ones concept of self. The medium of clay directly expresses this idea because of ceramic vessel comparisons to the human body. Both vessels and bodies are essentially spaces with the capacity to house interior thought and interstitial space. Formal references to cages and grid structures enunciate the idea of containment and societal conformity while the toy-like proportions and sensibilities of these objects allude to a higher social or spiritual entity at play.
