This beautiful piece had crafted out of porcelain is so delicate and soft it seems like something out of a fairytale. The human/plant hybrid speaks of our current economical situation.

“The romantic ideal of a union with the natural world conflicts with out contemporary impact on the environment.”

This work speaks strongly to me about the loss of our connection with animals and plants. Rather that working alongside each other we have given our selves high status and dominated the natural world. As stresses on the environment begin to show and our living conditions are endangered we must be aware of the damage we’ve done and act to repair our damage.
