This piece has been inspired by the twisted forms found in nature and personality.
I love working with clay as it lends itself to being manipulated, stretched, torn, twisted and shaped. It's the perfect medium for expressing contorted nature, and I think the beautiful celadon green glaze highlighting the tips of each twisted section was the perfect choice for this piece.
The work isn't supposed to make the viewer feel discomfort; on the contrary, its aim is to represent the flow and subtlety resulting from a contorted component.
One of the most satisfying elements of this piece is that every viewing angle presents a very different image.
It could be displayed on a turning base, so that every "side" can be seen. I believe it could be perceived at its best if uplit, allowing shadows to form and additional spaces to be revealed. Perhaps it could also be suspended from one of its tendrils?
