In Lovely Hungers I explore women's desires through the template of the decorative ceramic collectible. I emulate music boxes and princess figurines because they are targeted exclusively at the female consumer, and were the earliest version of commercial femininity to which I was exposed . I became infatuated with them swallowing their simplistic message hook, line, and sinker, only to be confronted with the complexities of my gender at a later age. Many women enjoyed the same items in childhood, and my hope is that the viewer relates to my tongue-in-cheek references to these endearing, yet saleable objects because of that shared personal history.
