Social clay

 

As ceramist we practice one of the oldest professions in the world, yet we live in a fast changing society in which technology controls our daily lives.

 

Nowadays the existence of smart phones and tablets allows that the digital world and its social media to intrude upon the inventive live of the artisan. It is a challenge to integrate the modern, very fast, technological lifestyle into the slow, meticulous craft of ceramics. I made a series of work, attempting to reconcile the two worlds.
