Combining personal narratives about time and the human condition, Monica’s most recent work illustrates ideas of imperfection, inevitability, and disease. She intentionally leaves portions of the work visible underneath the grotesque textured surfaces on her ceramic pieces to portray what used to be. Visit Monica's website.
