Title: Altering clay: enhancing daily rituals
Author: Matzdorf, Ashlen
Abstract: My MAP furthered my exploration of ceramics, as a means of producing functional pieces that stand apart from ordinary, generic dinnerware sets. My goal was to bring a quality of artistic sophistication to a ritual we experience every day – consuming food off of hand-built yet functional works of art. My set includes five matching dinner plates, dessert plates, bowls, cups and mugs that were thrown using cone-10 clay. Additionally, I made two larger forms for serving food, a platter and a bowl. I believe this project produced works of art embodying craft and quality suitable to be displayed individually in a gallery. When all of the ceramic forms are brought together as a unified dinnerware set, it connects the artist's spirit with a unique dining ritual.
