Staying Apart Keeps Us Together
H35 x W39 x D23 cm
Hand built stoneware, layered ceramic glaze materials, multiple firing.

Engaging with the Victorian Government’s campaign sentiment and reminiscent of the covid19 depiction, this artwork embodies vulnerability and fortitude. It reflects on the basic human need to connect and relates to nature’s malleable way of reproduction. The singular is supported
by the whole and the whole is united by the singular.

Clay vessels are emblems of our primal needs as containers for carrying water or food. In this work, bonded and reiterated they are also suggestive of human armed figures. Dynamic, rising upwards and sideways yet united it illustrates the paradox between the need for connection and staying apart.
