This installation explores ideas of community and belonging using porcelain house shapes as visual suggestions of shelters to represent individuals as they exist alongside each other.

The solidity of the porcelain is in equal parts restrictive and soft. There are no doors or windows, giving a sense of isolation to each sculpture, but because of the soft lines and gentle glazing, there is a sense of malleability to the work, which suggests openness. This interesting tension between the restrictive yet gentle feel of the grouping seems to be resolved in the piece having a quiet feel to it. There is a certain peacefulness underscored by a sense of loneliness.
