Vessels On Stilts

Pouring vessels on stilts reference museum displays of ancient clay pots supported by metal tripods, and offer a playful interpretation of the aesthetics of a practical application.

Receptive Vessels, Collect Art Fair – represented by Contemporary Applied Arts Gallery, The Saatchi Gallery, London 2017

The installation of eleven hand made metal vessels that respond to human voice suggested an experience that is an antidote to the traditionally hushed gallery environment. The viewers were encouraged to speak or even sing in order to trigger the vessels’ reaction through gentle movement.
