. . . For me, this assertion evokes the momentousness of the body to mind connection. I am interested in emotional responses to domestic objects and how culture, habits, and environments affect personal identity through simple acts of daily living.” 

“The influence of a domestic object lies in its ability to inspire meaning through nurturing acts, repeated over time, that become familiar and comfortable. The ability to engage in sensual expression is essential to deciphering this domestic intimacy. Thus, my pots are not only useful objects, but they are also subjects that have the ability to affect their users’ consciousness and to act upon the domestic spaces they occupy.”   - Birdie Boone
