Historical Context:
Jason S. Wesaw has always been an artist, exploring his creativity through photography and music. But in recent years, he has found new influences from his Pokagon Band of Potawatomi heritage which have led him to experiment with clay. While there are no strong traditions of working with clay among the living members of his tribe, he believes there is a connection that he is dedicated to rekindling. On this work he reflects, “I have harvested clay from near Lake Michigan, and I am able to give a voice to that material.”
