Alexandra Fitzgerald

The work I create is a meditation on memories and experiences, hopes and desires. By its repetitive nature, the medium of clay is a meditative process in its own right and I apply the experience throughout the entire making process. I am interested in awareness of self and how one’s experiences shape their personality and worldview. I choose to create functional work because the connection between object and memory is strong – it can ground our pivotal moments in ways more concrete than memory on its own. The desire to create those lodestones through clay and storytelling fuels my practice and stories.

As a way of creative storytelling I use animal characters to tell the stories that I wish to engage my audience in. Through the vehicle of storytelling I hope to create a moment of thoughtfulness and meditation, bringing my audience full circle to the core of my making practice. We are all connected in our moments of growth no matter how varied the direct causes of them may be, and my work should be used as a catalyst for that exploration of connectedness.
