From tradition to abstraction, from vessel as object
of use to vessel as stand-in for bodies, emotions and situations, the vessel is a universal symbol, something that every person can understand and cherish. How can one employ these symbols – cups, bowls, vases – and use them to relate to other materials and objects to create worlds of thought that are both new and familiar. These still lifes can help one to contemplate what one sees and does everyday, the relationships we navigate, relationships of all kinds, from personal, to political, to psychological and psychosocial.
