Piece: Self Portrait

Self Portrait

4″x4″x8″

Low Temp Fired Stoneware

An introverted and self-kept person all my life, I often find myself protecting and separating my true emotions from the outside world. This piece, crafted of a pair of scarred, root covered hands cradling a precious orb, represents the wall between our pearly, white exteriors that we show, and the sharp, black interiors that we often keep hidden, and the walls we put up to protect them.
