Juliane's Work

Hello Everyone,

I can't believe it is November already! I am still working with installations - porcelain at cone 10. The first images (1-3) are of an installation that I am still working on. Each piece roughly 2.5" x 2.5" x 1.5"; I want to make enough to cover a wall or center them a wall in the shape of a circle or oval. My original idea was to create shell-like shapes and put something in the middle of just one (like pearls) - but now I am thinking of putting in different objects scattered in the inside of some shapes. What the objects should be, I'm not sure.

The next series of images (4-9) are from "Pedestals" (not a very creatively titled work). Each one is roughly 6" x 6" x 3.5". I still want to play around a bit more with cutting into the pedestal forms and changing the environment in which my clay pieces sit. This idea still needs more exploring... I'd be curious to know what it reminds people of when they look at it.

The last shot is of a previous piece from my last post. I took Megan's suggestion on showing the piece with fewer bowls.

Do people still think of food when they see my work? After moving again, the ideas in my work feel a little fuzzy.
