Little Sanctums

5th Element Gallery exhibition 1999. Utilitarian Pottery helps create our home through utility and decoration. I am interested in how the pottery can create a sense of domesticity through placement and use. All the work in this exhibition in some way creates place a small space in between. In addition to its usefulness, this is place that the work can exist on its own. Across the surfaces of these pots are the decoration of screens. These can be interpreted as window screens, dressing screens or confessional. These screens have a sense of privacy, of intimacy, or domesticity and ritual. A special thank you to the 5th Element Gallery for support of this work and myself as a maker of pottery both useful and decorative.
