Reef - Is my first cohesive body of work consisting of 6 pieces produced since completing school. The series alters the modern-era inspired ceramic vessel to create both and functional and visually dynamic form. Because my inspiration stems from the fluidity in glass artistry and the diverse ecosystems that form the coral reefs the series takes on a playful and oceanic quality. Playful as the works may seem the many spikes that appear to puncture the surface of the vessel create a unique challenge. The spikes act like a defensive organism living on the surface of the object protecting its contents. As the eye travels around the vessel it almost appears to move and wave like reacting to an ocean current.
