My Archetypal Vessels reflect my ongoing fascination with the history of civilization, as it is revealed to us through ancient objects made of clay. Ceramic objects are storytellers of past lives and communities. While paintings fade away, metals corrode, wood and textiles rot, fired clay survive millennia and offer glimpses of cultures that have ceased to exist. By re-interpreting these strong forms and sacred designs, I intend to build a bridge of humanity shared by ancient and modern people.
