dc.description.abstract As humans and society have evolved, living has become more abstract and individualized. This report on the creative project discusses the artistic process and how each of the five works personalized or called attention to the abstractness of a beholder's existence. Each of the mixed-media works centered around a hand-built ceramic granary form which referenced the human drive to store resources. During exhibition at Ball State University, beholders would construct an association to storage by resolving the disparities caused by the mix of images and materials in each artwork.The artistic process was defined into three categories of experiences: personal investigation, experimentation and skill-building. A major component of personal investigation was the development of the Visual Vocabulary, a collection of devices, images and ideas from the artist's life experiences. The experimentation category occurred when the elements of the visual vocabulary were conceptualized into a scenario for an artwork. The physical work involved in making each artwork was part of the skill-building category. How each work was constructed and the exhibition was also discussed.
