Ginny Sims-Burchard

Ginny Sims-Burchard created a visual catalog that explores the “how” of what we take in through observation and interaction. From the most prosaic to the most profound, Sims-Burchard made a body of work that represents the complex questions and moments that we encounter on a daily basis. Reflective of many social and political questions of our time surrounding topical conversations of class, gender, race, domestic space, and displacement, Sims-Burchard’s aim was to create a piece a day over the project’s duration to serve as a sort of diary of her navigation through these increasingly important conversations and discussions. Collectively, the panelists felt that her work was pushing boundaries within the ceramic vocabulary and that the proposed risk of this project was both bold and future-looking.
