Life as a Vision

     This project is focused on the unrealistic and fantastical expectations I have held regarding my future. The piece is a circular panel of plywood, which is painted a rich sky blue, with ethereal-like white cotton clouds. There are slots cut out on the plywood sky to allow clear acrylic shelves to be inserted onto it. On the shelves, there are fired and unglazed terra-cotta vessels which are imperfect and flawed while being different shapes and sizes. The piece is mounted on the wall around eye level. There are Led strip lights mounted on the back of the piece to allow an angelic feel. 

     Along with the production of this project, I will be making small maquettes as testers which will be hung together as a side piece that accompanies the main project.
