The final teapots collection was created to challenge my technical skills and explore an aesthetic genre. The teapot is an object that evokes a sense of movement, and flow. The challenge of this collection was in bringing that flow into the form and surface of these vessels.
Still Life in Motion
As clay we are prone to gravity, a parasite to levity and drawn by centripetal forces until the wheel slows. The work presented here uses scale, and bodily imagery to imagine the parasitic forces of decay or regeneration. Presented with a kick powered wheel, the viewer is asked to become potter and clay. Experiencing the forces of creation to breathe the rhythm that is both making and being.
