These four pieces were designed to adorn the entryway to two major dining halls aboard a Carnival cruise ship. Each five-part piece is an elaboration on Bennett Bean's signature interlocking vessels.
They were designed to in existing niches and integrated into the overall nautical aesthetic and color palette.
The design constraints were established by the interior designers aboard the ship. With that, the artist was given freedom to create pieces reflecting the specified aesthetic.
They were the largest ceramic pieces I had created to date.
