ceramic, 2014, 4"w x 5"h x 3"d

Ceramics were traditionally used to contain things such as water, food, objects and other items. In its raw state, clay’s mutability allows it to be molded into a shape and then fired to preserve that shape. This piece does not lend itself to contain anything substantial; it was made as a container for light. Fragile and delicate, the piece contains light but also leaks it in order to create shadow. The durable and accommodating ceramic material becomes graceful and light as it holds something intangible and elusive.
