Last year our family grappled with a serious medical event, and have been working toward recovery ever since. The objects we have contributed are simple impressions made from squeezing a ball of clay in our fists. The three pieces are from each member of our family. As professional artists, Michelle and John have spent their lives making things, often out of clay. This past year, while challenging, has been an effort to regain strength and resolve to heal and continue to pursue our creative spirit. We have received so much love, support, and assistance from our friends, family, and caregivers here in Philadelphia. Ultimately they have helped us become a stronger family. The impressions are meant to evoke the gesture of strength in making a fist of resolve and spirit.
