The Crucible series urges a conversation between individual and global moments, touching on intimate aspects of this relationship. The porous connection between a lived experience to the far-reaching environment is portrayed through domestic, material manifestations. The artist’s own souvenirs, inherited objects, and hand-built ceramics interface with instances of environmental disaster and geo-planetary disruption. Crucible for surging, bursting, and spreading uses NOAA imagery of the
Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico as the grounding for a dead bee and found barnacles.
