Matte, Satin, Gloss is a collection of ceramic made objects that are organised by their light reflective surface quality. Each grouping consists of an optical lens, a natural element, lipsticks and books with made up titles. The inspiration for this work comes from the types of finishes on paintings and women’s lipstick. The small groupings of objects are meant to create fictional individuals that might collect the pieces. When building these micro sculptures I was thinking about social classes of women. Considering their personalities and they're everyday dilemmas, these collections are to showcase the strength of enduring women in all classes. Lipstick is war paint.
