During my time in graduate school I have investigated material and process. The combination of ceramics with metals is particularly of interest to me because of the remarkable contrast created by the fragility of ceramics against the rigid property of the metal. The juxtaposition of the two different physical properties holds a relationship I consider to be similar to the one humans have with many aspects of the industrial world. A great inspiration for creating my work is the influence that modern technological advances have on the natural structure and instinct that is found within life on earth. The techniques in this thesis work are traditional, but through exploration and experimentation they have evolved to generate creative work that illustrates a relationship between materials as well as interactions I perceive between humans and industry. They are referenced when used and can be found in the Appendix section of this report.
