This paper discusses the body of sculptural ceramic work developed for my thesis series, The Ties that Bind, which addresses the impact negative life experiences have on the human psyche. Some discussion focuses on various artists throughout history who have used their work as a vehicle for addressing similar issues, as well as the philosophical influences behind my work. The Ties that Bind was inspired by personal experiences and serves as a visual, metaphorical representation of the effects dysfunctional relationships can have on one's sense of Self.
