This thesis describes my MFA Thesis Exhibition: (In)Significant Objects, which was on display at the Paul Mesaros Gallery at the West Virginia University Creative Arts Center from November 29 to December 11, 2010. The exhibition included twenty-one large-scale ceramic storage jars and this written thesis explains why I, as an artist/craftsman, still find significance in these objects. By basing my vessels on ancient Greek amphoras, I am indicating that these forms, though heavy and obsolete by contemporary American standards, still have a role as decorative objects expressing vitality, idealism, and active discovery.
