With this coin bank Sharon Reay welcomes you to her imaginative and creative practice, where she explores the world of fantasy and childlike imagination through clay. Much of her inspiration comes from either nature or children's literature and her own vivid childhood memories. This handmade stoneware Humpty Dumpy Coin Bank will bring the viewer back to time when life was less complicated and we were all filled with childlike innocence. 

Sharon Reay, a Burnaby-based ceramics artist, is in residence at MOA from April to December 2019. During her time at MOA, Sharon has been studying the worldwide collection of ceramics and other works in the collection from two viewpoints. First, to see how they might inform her unique style of sculptural/functional work—whimsical pieces that function as vessels or bookends, where mythical beasts and fairy tale characters crawl up the sides of bowls and cups or hide inside and emerge from the pages of books. Raey has said that "the opportunity to study the MOA Collection more thoroughly enables me, I hope, to use what I learn to influence my work. It is truly inspiring.”
