This exhibition of recent work presents bull-nosed containers with a gently mottled surface alongside smooth yet tough biomorphic forms.
Several of her brown, grey and terracotta-coloured vessels (including Big Nose and Little Bear) have closed spouts or blunt, rounded handles. They recall weathered mooring posts until a peep inside reveals a shiny, wet-looking inner base, a hidden glaze that returns them to their pot-like origins without diminishing their curiously humanoid qualities. Sceitimini and Red Life owe a debt to ancient fertility symbols, their curves echoing a pregnant belly and thighs.
Burstingness recalls a body trapped inside a membrane, while White Life III buries its lumps under a smooth glacial blanket. Body-map meets landscape in objects like these, while her “I am too” series of goblets propped on simple holding stems reaffirm the natural, pared-down elegance of her vision.
