Clay Installation



The volume of what is precious is not the same as the volume of its loss.


“Things that are precious to us are often physically small but the weight of their loss feels disproportionately immense. I am exploring this concept in clay by hand building pairs of pots; both a small and larger version of a similar form. The small delicate pieces are made to fit into the palm of your hand, and refer to the idea of treasure and preciousness. The larger versions of the same forms don’t have the same delicacy. You need both hands to hold and support their weight. The feeling of loss in the larger forms is conveyed by this heaviness and scaled up volume of interior space.”
