Bowls represent a coming together because two hands form a bowl. I suggest this evokes kindness and empathy. To me, the noun ‘bowl’ holds multiple metaphorically meanings for hunger, desire, anger, satisfaction, fulfillment, oppression, etc.
I hand build functional pottery and utilize clay for my sculpting material. I love carving and sculpting shapes in clay in sympatico with molding these utilitarian vessels that can be used daily.
This series of clay work is my homage to production potters around the globe. From ancient times to today sculptors have devoted their life in making beautiful vessels. Thrilling for me to be part of that creed.
