Jacob Foran studio view while creating table centerpiece for SAM's Party in the Park 2016

Jacob Foran's table project for Party in the Park 2016 will be an installation of figurative ceramics and mixed materials that form spacial allusions to a garden, or clouds.  The narrative suggests a union of two figures: a blue boy and a lavender girl.  Eyes closed and smiling as if dreaming the same dream, the two children face inward towards each other underneath an imaginative archway.
