The Projections sculpture installation is an artistic incarnation of the sculptor’s own life experience of dealing with cancer and loss of her loved ones.

“Through various ceramic material experiments, I am able to capture this color range through the casting of glazes, spraying multiple layers of saturated underglazes, and the use of foaming glazes that form a purulent discharge that oozes out of various expressions. Everything is exaggerated. Life. Cancer. Growth. It’s all a repeating and continuous cycle of being wary of the future and empathetic of the past”, stated Jamie Bates Slone on her website.
