A symbiotic relationship is a relationship between two organisms that cannot survive without each other. Our collaboration is about how women survive and coexist by supporting each other. Despite the apparent difference in materials, ceramic and steel both go through an intensive firing process that chemically strengthens both materials. The two materials work together in a mutually beneficial relationship of balance. Our individual contributions represent this type of relationship because neither piece can exist without the other. By combining the two works of two different materials, we crate something that is altogether new, stronger in structure, and more beautiful as the materials work together.
