Reclaim, Repurpose, Relove

Charlotte, North Carolina

Laura is an elementary art teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has worked with polymer clay for ten years. This project has been the first time she made personal art in over seven months due to a series of seizures in February that caused damage to many facets of her life. Making this piece has helped bring her back to whole.

“Just as we reclaim things that others discard, sometimes we have to reclaim the parts of us we are told or think we need to discard. Just like the hubcap we don’t need to discard, we need to repurpose and reclaim and relove ourselves.”Laura Brosi
