Why can our favorite practical objects not also be individually created, and for that matter, even designed as works of art? I believe there is value in creating items for daily life, paying them as much attention as any artwork. This begs several questions: Where is the intersection between art and life? When does life become art, and when is art life? I have addressed these questions with my Senior I.S. project, using interdependent sculptures made from ceramics and bread to urge contemplation about the mediums themselves, as well as by offering hospitality and encouraging community through the physical act of sharing bread to those who view my work.
