I WANTED SNAP OUT OF IT TO DO TOO MANY THINGS, I had to make some sacrifices to keep my sanity. My top priority was to have this as a transformative piece. It is a piece about the transitions and healing experienced with depression. The piece had to consciously reflect fragility and change through the crisp nature of the porcelain. It needed to be something to be broken down several times, so a large neck piece felt like an obvious route. Each time a piece is broken off, the piece can be restrung as a new piece.

THE FOLLOWING ARE A SERIES OF SCREENS to evaluate the interactions of ceramic (for the purposes of a quick trial, I used air-dry clay) and emotion. After my participant chose the clay prop for each study, she would be randomly assigned an emotional prompt. None of her actions were premeditated, they were interactions of that moment. It was interesting to see which actions I anticipated and others which surprised me.  She said this activity was very cathartic and an overall fun experience.
