Stoneware, porclien, and plywood

To make these sculptures I have taken materials from vacant lots to guide my work engaging with the land and community. As a starting point in the works, I use the structure of a chain-link fence that surrounds empty lots in Chicago. I used the fence from a lot that is connected to my apartment and formed bricks pushing clay through the wire, then used the bricks to rebuild a new barricade.
