Ceramics by Yaina Kulp
We often distort our own vision to fuse ourselves into our surroundings. In the process, we struggle to inhabit our own skin. Time and time again we question our own reflection; we look but fail to see. How does one transform into something infinite if living day by day on autopilot? It is likely that we hand over our strings to those around us. We let our influences take the wheel to whatever path happens to appear. If you are so lucky as to break the cycle, seeing becomes your tranquility.
I started my life journey in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, where the landscape surrounds you with lush, green rainforests and the turquoise seas of the Caribbean. Four years later, my family made a transition to south Florida, which was where I discovered my love for art. Ever since that discovery, my education was encircled by all types of art forms. I found my passion for clay at the age of twelve and have followed that path to Kansas City MO, where I attended the Kansas City Art Institute. While in Missouri my heart found a new passion in my soul mate Chris. Chris and I got married five years ago and are now getting ready to start a family of our own.
