We find nostalgia in a number of everyday objects. Some of them stand out more than others, such as the ones Kristen Morgin has chosen for her clay-made works.
Morgin immortalizes nostalgic symbols of American culture like records, VHS covers, and Monopoly etc. The clay used to make the pieces are left unified intentionally to retain its texture and imperfections. The artist aims to explore the relationship between fantasy and reality while highlighting celebrity and beauty of the past. Check out some of her clay mementos below and find more of Morgin’s works on her website.
