Artist Statement for my piece, Plate of Armor 
Growing up as an outsider informed my approach as an artist, working on themes of social justice. My vessel bears an enamel painting of two intertwined figures from Roman mythology, based on a design from the parade armor of Henry II of France. The presence of symbols of war on this everyday object evoke the intrusion of threat into peaceful existence and the cruel necessity of psychic armor for many in day-to-day life. The cracks in the vessel are repaired in a nod to the Japanese art of kintsugi; rather than hide the object’s damage or dispose of it, these imperfections are accentuated as essential to the unique history and beauty of the object. So to do our own individual hardships create who we are, and rather than hide the experiences that necessitated our psychic armor, we must learn to find beauty and healing even in pain.
