Soma Vessel VIII
Soma Vessel VIII is a decorative and functional piece by ceramicist Viv Lee. This piece forms part of a new series of work in which Viv continues to explore the materiality of clay and the metaphor of body as a vessel.
Inspired by surrealism and the biomorphic sculptures of Hans Jean Arp, Viv finds beauty in asymmetry and the irregularity of the human body, rather than seeking perfection in symmetrical forms. When Viv approaches making as a means of connection to self and nature, she appreciates the wonderful diversity of forms that emerge and embraces flaws; accepting them as the beautiful idiosyncrasies that make each vessel unique.
Due to the clay’s porous nature, please protect your surface underneath.
