Keturah Design Series

Marlina Koonce's avatar Marlina Koonce

I am proposing the creation of a mini dress series. Taking the concept of last year's entry: Rittenhouse Design, these smaller scaled dress designs will be created from ceramic and textiles, hand sewn, and removable from the ceramic dress form on which each dress will be displayed. Simply put, the dress designs could be thought of as functional ceramic doll clothes. The series will include at least 3 original designs. Each around 12 - 15" tall. My work is inspired by my grandmother, a retired clothing designer, and my mother. It is because of them that I am passionate about fabric and textiles. By translating fabric into ceramics I am able to combine my love of textiles with my other passion, clay.
