Ritual Objects

by 17 junio 2013

Ritual Objects is a collection of glazed slipcast terracotta vessels made up of combined geometric shapes. Each of the eight objects have been designed with the same geometric principals, and in this way, are reduced down to a series of symbols. The objects present contrasting qualities of texture (rough vs. smooth), color (saturated vs. muted), finish (shiny vs. matte), and condition (natural vs. artificial). Despite a lack of planned use, each object has the capacity to take on a number of different functions, including cup, vase, bowl, table and desktop containment, and others. Their functional and aesthetic ambiguity allows for a freedom of use and context.
