Jessica Bell’s Family (2023) is a series of six free-standing sculptures, each named after a member of the artist’s family. It celebrates the joy and unity found in familial bonds, which is reflected in the sculptures' vibrant colors. Similar but distinct, they represent the uniqueness of individual family members while showcasing the strength of their interconnectedness. Crafted with care and artistic finesse, the sculptures incorporate organic ceramic elements with various textures and finishes. One of the most captivating aspects of the Family series is its interactive nature⁠—the sculptures can be disassembled and reassembled. Just as families evolve and grow over time, these artworks can adapt, allowing viewers to engage in their transformation.
