Domestic Bliss is my ceramic sculpture and mixed media MFA thesis exhibition with supporting written monograph. Through the combination of these works I investigate influences in my life, which ultimately affect the choices I make regarding my role in domestic space. I critically examine illusions of domestic bliss, specifically myths about female domestic roles, emphasizing the impact my grandmother and her hand-made dollhouse have had on my life.
