> DESCRIPTION

The success of a culture can be measured by what it produces.Cultivating Civility is a body of work that explores the expansion and acceleration of cultures through the lens of ceramic objects. Archaeologists continue to unearth bowls, baskets, vases, bottles and other artifacts from early civilizations, all over the world. These preserved bits of information help us to build an understanding of not only the utility of the items but the spirituality of the people who made them. Cultivating Civility is Karmo’s way of processing the history of clay in three-dimensions.
