Night and Day, 2021

60 cm
Industrial ceramic production methods inform my practice. Working with found objects allows me to consider the production process of anonymous makers. I map the objects and create plaster moulds lined with scars and junctions. Using porcelain clay and colour I can build a new narrative. Night and Day reflects a merging of two extremes. As my community shuts down for weeks and months it is hard to know one day from the next. Details dissipate and a sense of lost days and foggy memories set in. Night and Day is a landscape of objects that revealed itself after the high firing process when the porcelain vitrified. My found objects are returned to the site of discovery and plaster moulds have a limited life span.
