Christie Burris | “My Community”

"Normally my work is functional and wheel-thrown. The 2019-20 COVID pandemic changed all that. Not only were there challenges of setting up a clay studio in my apartment, but learning a whole new method of ceramics, slab work. The pieces I have shown here represents what I missed the most during this challenging time. My community. The connection, diversity, and shared creativity was a huge loss for me. I created my “people” to show how I missed my community and just like the pandemic, not done yet. "
