Coadunation

This piece is comprised of a group of 9 pieces, one free-standing bust and 8 hand painted wall hung pieces. All are made of porcelain. The bust is glazed and fired to cone 5. The wall pieces are glazed and fired to cone 5 as well, though some have oil-painting overpainting. The piece represents a deep personal connection to the idea and ideals of beauty. The title, Coaduation, means united by growth. As I grow older, my early interpretation of "beauty" and my more mature realization are joined into a new conceptual reality of the idea of beauty. Spirituality and experience have lead me to believe in beauty as something deeply personal, though the societal pressures an expectations of beauty are ever-present.
