A collection of objects inspired by mind and matter, 2016.
The Mindbody series dances between sensibilities: functional and sculptural; dense fullness contrasts with fragility and movement.
These pieces were built over a time of transition. An anxious rattling mind is detached from a body.
The act of 'throwing' with clay is a bodily experience: to push a lump of clay to the center of a spinning wheel, begs focus, stillness. Delving deep into the medium is a therapy that brings mind and body back together.
It took a long time to make a coherent body of work out of this project, it flexed, writhed, and became its own thing.
