(2022) Ongoing project, ceramic bowls of words.
For 2022 I threw a smaller batch of bowls 38 ended up being the number. I was aiming for 62, but a glaze test run amok caused me to have to put 24 bowls into my seconds stash. The three phrases I chose for this round are, MOONAGE DAYDREAM, GIVE TAKE, and NADIE ES ILEGAL. Many will recognize MOONAGE DAYDREAM as the title of track three from David Bowie’s “The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars”. GIVE TAKE is a profound mantra I find often running through my head. I have for some time been doing my best to remind our elected Senators and House members, through various social media applications, that NADIE ES ILEGAL or NO ONE IS ILLEGAL. Pottery has the chance to communicate something to the future, as a fragment or an intact vessel. With these bowls, I aim to share a little of who we are as humans at this time. If you’re in the Seattle area and would like to arrange a pick up/in person viewing of inventory. Email for inquiries. email@example.com
For 2021 I chose three new phrases, SPACE ANNIHILATORS, YOU AND I ARE EARTH, and TIME IS MEMORY. Here’s a little explanation of the three phrases: SPACE ANNIHILATORS, in reference to humans, comes from Paramahansa Yogananda; YOU AND I ARE EARTH, was written on a plate discovered in the sewer of England also accompanied by the date of 1661; and TIME IS MEMORY, is the creative mantra of my good friend.
