ARTIST STATEMENT
Containment is an ongoing investigation of the dualities of internal/external space. The vessel is employed as a tangible structure that can be imbued with meaning and sentiment, however the traditional functionality of the vessel is challenged, working in a slightly facetious manner, the vessel is contained within a larger structure undoing the fundamental utility of the form and placing it within a new context to prescribe new meaning.  Containment aims to highlight the container and the contained through the interplay between internal /external space, light / shadow and absence / presence. The exploration of process and materiality helps to navigate these dualities. The translucent qualities of the porcelain vessels, along with the use of industrial materials used to alter or disguise surfaces brought together and held within a transparent bag aims to bring emphasis to the non-functional nature of the vessel and allow for further consideration.
