Data is provided by the student.


This body of work explores the complex webs between human and animal relations. The commingled history is displayed within individual animal forms that show those characteristics that people today claim they can still "see" in animals. Each work is a visual record showing fragments of the thousands of years old story. They clay and pigments that have been used are equally as significant for their part in the record keeping practiced by our ancestors since before the invention of paper.
