    About The Work

    Elizabeth Jaeger routinely grapples with ideas and emotions embedded creatively within a familiar object, though the narrative is often incomplete or obscured. The flower in Jaeger's work has always been a symbol of fertility and loss. Plumerias are often planted in graveyards and used in funeral ceremonies. In this series, fertility shows its anthropomorphic qualities—the visible fingerprints in the petals, the inevitability of the imminent death of a bouquet. 

    Each work in the series was handcrafted, the bases formed on a mold and then "birthed" from the ceramic once it had dried. The work is an edition in the sense that there was a specific method by which each piece was made, but in its execution, each one is truly unique.
