Porcelain Vessels

2019

Inspired by the idea that the bowl can act as a microcosm for a large world, I have assembled handmade vessels into a collection. Each piece miniaturises a geological landscape into something you can hold in your hand. The techniques used in ceramics are also found in the real world, the fusion of rocks and sediment under high temperatures are replicated by the changes that occur in the kiln under high firing. 

While the techniques may be found in nature the use of porcelain creates an otherworldly aesthetic, the smooth bright white surfaces contrasting starkly against the exteriors. The stark whiteness feeling bleached. Each fragmentary piece has been arranged with control.
