As For Living
As for Living is a series of woven clay pieces that explore the relationship between the way we live in the affluent west and the earth's finite resources. The woven clay fish traps evoke the sustainability of traditional ways of life. Only one fish trap remains unbroken, the rest in stages of ruin that mirror the fragility of our existence. The glazed chair stands removed, as if observing from a comfortable vantage point the destruction of traditional approaches to living. Yet the chair is also fragile and vulnerable, it being a matter of time before it too is in ruins.
