After getting my MFA degree in 2010, I went skydiving in Palatka, FL with a group of friends. 2 1/2 years later, the experience has made its way onto one of my favorite forms, the treat server.
I've changed up the form of my treat server to tell this story by making the surfaces flat, instead of curved. The flat surface makes the servers more useful. I had the chance to try one out at the reception of my solo show at the Carbondale Clay Center last weekend. The blue server was filled with multi-colored gumdrops for all to enjoy.
While I will continue to make the curved surfaces of my traditional treat servers, many featuring spoons tucked inside pockets, I am excited about using the two levels to showcase a visual narrative on the flatter surface.
