MFA Creative Writing Thesis
Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
This thesis is the documentation of three years of research and experiences within the field of functional ceramics. My research at WVU has led me to discover new influences, processes, and, in essence, a professional voice with which to speak in the field of ceramics. Also of importance is the personal exposure to the Chinese culture and its continuous history and relationship to ceramics. Within this documentation I have explained how a semester in China has transformed my aesthetics both formally and conceptually. I have also expressed my personal revelations about function and how it has become a driving force for personal expression.
