Traditional ceramics meet the modern world. Inspired by the 1977 song lyrics by the Talking Heads' musician David Byrnes, "My building has every convenience... It's gonna make life easy for me... It's gonna be easy to get things done," Ledford researched anthropological ceramic traditions used as narratives about culture, individual relationships and activity. His ensembles explore mid-century ideologies of modern conveniences that question women's roles, mass marketing, mass consumption, and the dogmatics of suburbia.
