Social Circles #1

Ceramic and glass, 1″ diameter

My days are brighter when I feel connected to the people around me.  Some of my social circles are small- the people I call on when I have a question or need a boost.  But other circles are wider- the people I recognize on the train and wave to, the people whose names I can’t remember but whose faces I know. They all provide a sense of security and familiarity.  These blue circles and the red and orange lines connecting them are playful, like the friendly waves between old friends who just barely remember each other.
