EARTHLY SOLES

 

Earthly Soles was an installation I created for my senior show thesis in Spring of 2016. Ever since I was a small girl, I enjoyed being outdoors more than anything.  I wanted to be outside climbing trees and rolling around in the mud. As i paraded around in my bare feet, I realized the connection you could feel to the earth through your feet.  I could feel the earth absorbed through the soles of my feet. Clay is from the earth,  It is created from the minerals and the plants that make up the elements of the soil. It is found in areas where streams and rivers once flowed.  Working with clay gives you the ability to hold different forms in a delicate way.  I use the clay and its transforming ability to give an illusion of the earthly qualities within each picture.
