About The Artwork

Here is the first of the new Read My Tail Series which was handbuilt from smooth white stoneware clay and glazed in a rainbow of colors.. It's titled "Tail of True Colors" and was created in honor of #pridemonth to remember all who suffered (or are suffering) persecution for who they love. This love is for you. The inspiration of the Read My Tail Series comes from a few different places and is an amalgamation of those meshed together - the way cats express different emotions through their tail positions is the main one, but also my love of sea creatures like the Spanish Dancer and the general undulation of waves come into play as well.

Touch, in my opinion, is the most underrated and undervalued of the senses. It has the power - to Heal, to Soothe, to Hurt, to Love, to Create. The way a lover's skin feels during a passionate moment. The way mud feels squishing through my toes. The way porcelain slides through my hands and fingers as I unawaredely manipulate it in the way my mind wants. This is how I create. I create through a stream of consciousness and I find it very freeing because my hands just create whatever the brain is directly telling them to do. There's no pre-planning so it frees the mind from responsibility, allowing the mind to revel and enjoy the beauty of the moment. As I am eternally fascinated by the purity of form and fluidity within the seas' depths, my hands "massage" sculptures into being inspired by the creatures and oceanic movements found within. Squishing clay through my fingers... The sensuality of it is like nothing else and that is why I choose to use no other tools, apart from my hands, when I sculpt. About Sylvie - Sylvie doesn’t remember when she was first introduced to clay because it was around her from birth – her grandmother had her pottery studio on the ground floor of their house in Bel Air, Seychelles. When she wasn’t at school, she spent time most days of her childhood in the studio with her. According to Sylvie, her grandmother “was the most amazing and encouraging teacher and allowed me to learn to create without boundaries thereby making my own mistakes by pushing the boundaries of different media. Since then, I have not stopped feeding the creative spark that she lit in me.” Having moved to the US and as an adult, Sylvie transitioned from one three-dimensional medium to the next. As a young adult, she created wax sculptures and during her undergraduate years she undertook stone sculpture. She then moved on to glass mosaics, wirework, beading, polymer clay sculpture and anything else she could get her hands on. Once in Guam, she started teaching art lessons as well as still creating her own work. Her love for clay resurfaced while she was doing her Master of Arts in Art degree at the University of Guam and, consequently, she decided to end her career as a freelance editor to pursue art full-time. As a three-dimensional artist, she specializes in sculpture and ceramics whereby her artwork is biomorphic in style and sensual in movement.
