Our lives are comprised of stories we tell ourselves and pass to one another. They are not static or finite but change and develop throughout our lives. Reflecting my theater background, this piece is a story within a story. Neither heroine is static. They are caught mid-action—mid- narrative. They represent the tensions of navigating life. Do they recognize the existence of one another and how they may interact? How much do we allow ourselves to be the star of our narrative? Hand built porcelain stoneware with layers of ceramic and cold finishes. She sits on a handmade theater box harnessing the suspension of disbelief using clouds on sticks as props and a garden represented by a few hand made flowers. We are meant to understand this story is staged, but nevertheless sincere. The larger female has a hand made skirt and is adorned with antique venetian glass. Her raindrop prop is hand made with antique clock chains.
