RECORDING: CLOTHING-INSPIRED TEXTURES AND STAINED PORCELAIN SLABS TO MAKE A MUG WITH SAM BRIEGEL
My work reclaims the identity of clothing textures and patterns. The body and the vessel share a similar vocabulary of lips, shoulders, bellies, and feet. I use this comparison to clothe implied bodies. As functional pottery, these works demand interactions through use. Akin to our clothing, these interactions also make us aware of our bodies. What happens to the clothes that we love but can never wear again? These articles contribute to our identities. What happens when our clothes no longer comfort us? As a female potter, I am offering a reclaimed comfort that delivers nourishment, tactile moments, and conversation.
