This thesis was undertaken to explore the possibilities of utilizing the boat as a unique form for my own work in the realm of ceramic sculpture. I dealt with the boat as a metaphor to depict personal fantasies, daydreams and past encounters. In these pieces I depict the sense of freedom I feel from skimming across the surface of water. Some appear as though they are in rapids of a river. Another is a depiction of being in the middle of a big body of water and feeling rather small.
