Fragile Vessels


Fragile Vessels

2012, Handbuilt, Cone 10, Sandstone, Bisque-fired

My assignment was to reflect on the letter “Q”.  The letter “Q,” for the German Quelle, or “source,” contain stories, or fragments held in common by writers Matthew and Luke but in vessels that left no material trace, perhaps due to their fragility and destruction.

In many ways, all materials have always been here.  Clay remains and is recycled. The same material we hold today were here before we were.

Perhaps, the images and the sounds made then have been recorded in these same materials, if we just listen and look very closely.
