My Contribution to the Queen City Public Art Project, Arlington, Virginia
As one of the seventeen ceramicists in Nekisha Durrett's Queen City project, I created over eighty tear-shaped pots with a profound purpose. These vessels resemble tears and fill a lasting structure: an ocular well of remembrance for a displaced Black community uprooted by the United States Pentagon. Through my hands embracing the clay, I embody resilience. Empowered by preserving history, my contribution commemorates the strength of those forgotten. Excitedly, I used clay, my cherished medium, to memorialize this history.
