Mossy Brain Porcelain Sculpture

This is a finished handmade porcelain brain decorated with a cobalt blue slip, and a mossy shino glaze. The piece is about self-awareness and daydreaming. Lately, I find it easier to dwell on everything that is not going as a like-- job, relationships, finances, etc... and getting stuck in a self-perpetuating cycle of anger and self-doubt, left with an overwhelming sensation of hopelessness. This piece is a confrontation with my racing thoughts in an attempt to shift their course. Maybe send them to a mossy trail along the beach where the air is salty and damp, and nobody has an expectation of you.
