Historical Context:
Daniel Bare is a Ceramic Technician and Instructor in GVSU's Art and Design Department. In my work, I examine the impact of overproduction, consumption and disposal of resources to show how these actions affect ecological balance. "I feel an over-powering sense of gluttony and greed when I see the plethora of disregarded products that are briefly used and disposed casually. This cycle is indicative of a human view of resources and the world as an endless and miraculously self-renewing material. Curiously, one could see a beauty and power in the vastness of multiples and the sheer numbers of objects that are crafted everyday without notice."
