Image Statement: I consider the meaning and etymology of words and phrases in my work. Some of the definitions of recall include: to bring back from memory, to summon to return, to bring (one's thoughts or attention) back to matters previously considered, to revoke or withdraw, and to revive. Recall(ed) began with the Iraq war. I had been thinking about how many people have lost their lives and the ramifications of those losses. For each death, I made a hand-squeezed porcelain piece, holding the thought of each individual in the palm of my hand.
