Tammy Marinuzzi

Tammy Marinuzzi's work is whimsical, expressive, and human while also being functional and part of the daily ritual. She works in utilitarian forms such as plates, teacups, bowls, and jars but gives them animalistic or human emotive qualities. Her work is meant to expose the imperfections of emotion while creating a focal point of interaction with the work creating a place for self-examination. Tammy is an avid people watcher and viewing her work is an inside peek into her daily observations.

Tammy Marinuzzi Artist Statement

Daily interactions, smiles, laughs and sorrows have no cultural bounds. The similarities that make us human and the life events that cause us to be differing inspire my artistic vision. I am a people-watcher, an observer who reads body language and facial expressions and finds there my principle source of artistic inspiration.

The work is meant to express and expose common human imperfections, surrounding behaviors such as greed, lust, jealousy, fear, love, and joy. The ceramic objects are utilitarian, amenities that people use on a daily basis: plates, cups, teapots, salt and peppershakers. The work brings self-awareness directly to the table. It is made to mimic the interactions of everyday life and to encourage self-examination. They can be read as heavy both in weight and emotion, a metaphor for human interaction: "One can fill a cup or render it empty."
