A series of hanging, sculpture pieces capturing the natural, feminine beauty of porcelain and form. Playing with the idea of emotional strength; my ceramic sculptures feature collaborations between preforming conceptual issues, the human body and personalities.
My work is a study of deterioration, using the female body as a form for manipulation to portray a loss of identity. Works portray unorthodox manipulations of the form, through an exploration of processes, exposing the dramatic and cruel behaviour of cancer, the use of medicine, and their effects on the body and personality.
My porcelain pieces express a heightened interest in the physical materiality of porcelains pure aesthetic. My works promote working with porcelain in its purest form, its natural aesthetic is so beautiful, its smooth skin like qualities were portrayed as a feminine aesthetic.
The strength of the clay forced me to push the material to its boundaries of thinness, becoming extremely fragile, lightweight and paper thin areas. This has inspired me to further push the material to explore how ridiculously thin I can get the manipulated forms, without the form, or material falling apart.
