Ceramics Sculpture Fine Art

Our lives are intertwined with categories in which we like to place things. Objects are defined by form, colour and scale, but most importantly by their function and our understanding of them. Through my ceramic sculpture I hope to show how breaking these conventions can bring a new order and understanding to objects and ourselves within the world. I am drawn to things that are multi-dimensional: they defy boundaries both physically and metaphorically. Life does not exist within a static state, so why should objects? This ever-shifting plane or mindset we live in is diminished in the way many works are displayed. I feel it is important to break this and situate artwork in the same fluid state it was created in. Through creating large scale sculptures I encourage the viewer to think about their physical relationship with the object and how it relates to their bodies? How they are forced to move around it? By drawing the viewer to think about themselves and the object it would spark a new way of looking at things within the world and developing our understanding of us and objects. Breaking order into chaos to create a new enriched sense of order.
