Porcelain, original process, multiple firings
From the artist: My practice is rooted in the relationship between process, material and meaning. I am interested in the exchange of energy that is essential to life, be it intrinsic or extrinsic. The energy at the molecular level that attracts or repels particles of clay is invisible to the eye, but the effects are apparent. I have developed a process of working in which the juxtaposition of clay and glass creates another layer of tension, allowing me to test the limits of endurance and resilience within the form of the porcelain vessel. I am drawn to how these ceramic materials and processes have affinities with the human condition; how we respond and engage with the injury of experience - within, with each other, with the other. By embracing wounds, deeper meaning can be brought to our lives, transforming suffering into something worthy, sensuous and beautiful.
