My name is Mollie Ward and I’m a junior BFA major with a double concentration in drawing and ceramics. My current pastel drawings focus on the soft forms of the figure and
through color, I want to create an abstract representation of the experiences of myself and those close to me.
In ceramics, I am interested in the connection between form and function. I draw inspiration from the figure, whether explicit or abstract. I’d like for my ceramic pieces to be useful and beautiful, and to be enjoyed and used in one’s space.
Trying to uncover my understanding of myself and my relationship with my body drives all the work that I do and I hope to create work that is equally personal and engaging to the viewer.
