To best introduce my thesis, I present my initial proposal: The purpose of this body of work will be to further develop a visual dialogue in clay which reflects my personality and my own evolution. I intend to focus on formal issues such as form and how it exists in space, as well as surface and presentation. As references I will be using forms from nature such as shells, pods, and weathered stones. I will be exploring a variety of glazed, painted, and textured surfaces which will allude to the passage of time. I will give my audience just enough visual information to provoke contemplation and curiosity.
