Christopher St. John - Blue Birds
I created these birds to honor victims of gun violence. In creating these works, I wanted to transfer some of the grief and frustration I felt as an artist into ceramic form. Each of these porcelain birds forms a rattle, and the rattle was fashioned in the shape of a bullet. This work is meant for viewers to evoke comfort and peace. Each of these small forms measures 5”x3”x3” and is glazed and fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
