This vessel is one of many in the series titled Unsung Muses and illustrates some of the enigmatic narratives surrounding Lilith. In one frame she soaks up the full moon in all her glory, and in another, she is seen eating a child. The story goes that she was punished for not being submissive to Adam; in one tale, she is cursed to eat her own children and in another to watch 100 of her babies die every day for the rest of time. While Lilith has been demonized, feminist scholars have taken a different perspective of her story. Today, many women see her story as representing all of us who do not wish to be considered less than anyone else, and in this way, Lilith becomes a symbol of divine feminine power.

Alex Hodge was always drawn to the arts and regularly channeled her creativity as a child whether in watercolor classes or scrapbooking with her mother. She attended the University of Georgia and received her BFA in Ceramics in order to learn the ways of coaxing clay. While at UGA, Hodge had her first solo exhibition, Unsung Muses, in addition to her BFA show, Eyes That Bind. She graduated summa cum laude along with other honors, such as the Outstanding Undergraduate Award and Mary Rosenblatt Scholarship. After graduation, she spent the summer as the Ceramics Instructor for URJ Camp Coleman, where she realized her potential as a teacher. She then pursued her MFA at the University of Miami, where she has received the MFA Summer Fellowship as well as the William Oberman Award. She will graduate summa cum laude after the conclusion of her thesis exhibition In Light of Her. She continues to pursue teaching as the Camp Manager and Instructor for Clay Camp at the Ceramic League of Miami and as an adjunct faculty at the University of Miami. Though she naturally finds a place in teaching, it is her studio work that is the driving force of her existence.
