Constance McBride: The Lonely Girls, 2013
In this series, works depicting physical aging and a gendered issue surrounding dementia are engaged from a female point of view. Questions surrounding social responsibility are visited through an intimate look at a mother’s dilemma. My focus shifted to my mother after a few years of observing and caring for her while she navigated her days living with Alzheimer’s disease. My mother’s countenance emerges in the work through clay figures over a period of time and through multiplicity. By investigating concrete representations and creating situations that the viewer will identify with, I hope to engage the viewer in a deeper way.

Friggin love this pitcher. It has so much swoosh to it. And kind of sassy. And it kind of looks like a bird with a giant crest. Or a pelican, depending on which way you look at it.
Jars have been trimmed!
Cup that came out last night. Clear glaze pinholed like crazy though :( hopefully another fire through will get rid of them.
