My grandmother’s bungalow has been a place of consistent comfort and security. It was this small space in which myself, my sister and my mother lived in transition from distancing ourselves from an abusive environment to the home we live in now. My ceramic sculptures therefore derive from features of my grandmother’s house. Ceramic sculpture relates to the notion of fragility due to the nature of the medium itself and in making monotonous household objects in this medium, they are then ornamental. It also relates to domesticity as it can be found inside kitchen cupboards and below bathroom mirrors. Clay itself originates from mother earth, and therefore references the maternally charged upbringing I have experienced. The sculptures are accompanied by a sound piece depicting the sounds within my grandmother’s living room during one of our weekly Sunday dinners; all of which is surrounded by domestic film photography.
