Salt and Pepper Shakers

Evelyn Kline


Artist Statement: I aim to capture pieces of a story in my work, whether through characters, places or objects. I am inspired by many things in my life – places I walk by on the way to school, weirdly shaped fruit, faces in the sidewalk, the skunk standing between me and my car. Seeing the beauty and humor in everyday life inspires me to incorporate this silly, whimsical strangeness into the things I make. Telling stories and making things helps me to make sense of myself and the world around me, and I hope that my work will bring a sense of joy, comfort, and nostalgia to the viewer.
