Murmuration XXIV

Item details

Custom, site-specific Murmuration for AC Hotel in OKC. Drawing on the tones of wood walls of the lobby and the landscape surrounding the city, I chose to explore two clay bodies and combine terra cotta and porcelain, echoing the earth and sky that are split so beautifully in the Midwest. If the viewer spends time with the work, they may notice the occasional fleck of golden reflected light pooling in a small collection of the hand-sculpted pieces. This detail was included to capture the light pouring in from the front of the lobby, recalling the visual of sunlight moving along the Oklahoma River and surrounding bodies of water.
