Joanna Pike

BFA Nova Scotia College of Art & Design I create objects that deliver concept through functionality. Humans collect objects that are familiar and reinforce their identity on a subconscious level. I utilize this occurrence to create objects that are redesigns of those often collected and passed down to younger generations. The materiality of these pieces is of the utmost importance. By using ceramic waste material such as clay and glaze from sink traps and abandoned materials I mold pieces that emulate the the infrastructure of our material culture Molds are recovered from the trash or are byproducts of my own material consumption. The result is a functional sculpture that quietly proposes a new way of living.
