Abstract: Flourishing Hope displays the strength of positivity within the human spirit using floral-based ceramic sculptures. The work is assembled out of various ceramic bulbs, shoots, and blooms, all of which are fragile and push ceramic materials to the limits. As the pieces of each flower are combined they become stronger. The collection of these floral pieces represents the power that the growth of positivity builds has within the human spirit. My work shows that despite the challenges that humans face in everyday circumstances, positivity within the human spirit can grow, strengthen, and manifest itself both externally and internally.
