Common "every day" objects

Shalene Valenzuela is inspired by common every day objects when she creates beautiful slip cast pieces.  Her inspiration on the artwork on the pieces is from an idealized time in society and advertising.  She paints fairytales and coming-of-age issues.  Some of her views are political, but most are fun and creative.  She considers her artwork to be from a "maniacal 50's housewife" view.

  1. I don't really understand the validity of what this artist is doing. She could achieve the same effect by painting on an actual ice skate or sewing machine. Waste of slip in my opinion. She is going through all the effort to make something that already exists and just adding a graphic on it.
