Fluid curves. Delicately wilted like dreams of the things it could've held, yet resilient. The tender turn of a new page.
Near the end of 2020, I purchased a tiny wheel to throw in my compact NYC apartment kitchen. This piece was one of my first "kitchen throws."
Lately, when a piece doesn't turn out how I intend, I like to speed up the wheel extra fast, hold my hands close, and gently hug the clay. Instead of turning into a mountain of mush, the vessel's walls fold and transform. The idea of the clay deciding its own final form is inspiring to me.
Clay: Brown Speckled Brown
Color(s): Turquoise blue/aquamarine glaze
