Inflatables > More Inflatables

Hand-built clay inflatable swans and other creatures serve as trompe l’oeil metaphors of contemporary life. Whether filled or deflated of air, when placed within teacups and organic shapes, they suggest the clash of modern culture and artifice with nature. These ceramic forms exist in a landscape that reflects a view of life as an internal conflict of paradise and purgatory.
