The Living Road is an installation of 85 components of smoke-fired, handbuilt ceramic discs, orbs, pipes, and textured wall pieces. Inspired by the coastline of BC and Alaska, oceanographic forms, and the remains of the Klondike Gold Rush and local fishing industries, the work illustrates the interplay of natural landscape and industrial decay through the transitions of time, and place.

“Though your body is bending
Under the load
There is nowhere to stop
Anywhere on this road”
Lhasa, The Living Road

This body of work was created in Whitehorse, Yukon, with the support of an Advanced Artist Award from the Yukon government. It was exhibited at Arts Underground Gallery in Whitehorse in 2006 and at the Nanaimo Public Art Gallery in 2008.
