Figurative Vessel II, 16 x 7.5 inches. Deconstruction/Reconstruction, finding new form, stoneware.
This figurative vessel is part of my series on the Folded Female embracing the broken, the flaws and marks left behind, as scars or lifelines.
Finding strength and beauty in the broken, the vulnerable, the essence of resilience.
Loved collaborating with my artist friend Marilyn Dale who gave me her thrown clay vessel allowing me to take her apart and put her back together. This intuitive process of deconstructing and constructing allowing the piece to find new form.
