Here we go, the next and penultimate piece of aspex’s evolving conversation/exhibition Say What You See has been selected by Joanne Bushnell, Director of aspex, and it is Altered Porcelain Vessel by the Isle of Wight based artist Sue Paraskeva.
Judes Crow’s Post-historic Gravegoods are her treasures to take to the after life. My latest work, also made from clay, comes very close to its own destruction.
For the last twenty years I have altered my thrown porcelain bowls, more tentatively in the past, but now dramatically letting go and throwing the pieces (literally) onto the floor or by throwing painted wood at the work, creating beautiful pieces from dramatic events.
There is a fine line between the complete collapse of the work during this creation from a vessel, but they survive, damaged and beautiful.
