ARTIST STATEMENT

This pair of handbuilt vessels arises from a residency I undertook at Fiskars, an artists collective village deep in the forests of Finland. I spent time observing and documenting this northern hemisphere landscape as my way of coming to terms with unfamiliar surroundings. Grain, pattern, texture and repetition were constants in the grasses, rocks, plants and trees. These vessels explore the minute details of this Nordic forest – the papery pitted surfaces of the trees, the tall skinny trunks, and the graphic pattern of the bark.
