As a ceramic artist, I am using high fired porcelain forms to create miniature memorials for our ever shrinking polar ice caps. Through the use of public installation, I am seeking to arrange the ceramic forms in ways that potentially confront the viewer in hopes to generate discourse and/or reflection. The use of ceramic materials will help me as an artists gain insight in to the material and push the concept of slipcast porcelain kitsch souvenirs in to different avenues of utilization: as a means of ecological statement rather than soley nostalgia.
