Try Try Again explores femininit­­­y, infertility, heritage, self-imposed expectations, the expectations of others, grief and mourning. Small and delicate seed-like structures have become the children that I can provide for. While I’m constructing them, I give them names, support, and care. Then, I send them off into their own atmosphere where they encounter intense stresses during the firing process. My support may become a help or a hindrance. They might be cracked, broken, gray, and slumped versions of their younger selves. But whatever the outcome, they are much stronger than they were before.
