Transforming Spaces 2014

"Ocean's Bounty" coiled earthenware and sea glass.

"Ocean's Bounty" coiled earthenware and sea glass.

“Ocean’s Bounty” is my exploration of the mysterious bond we all have with the ocean. I chose the coil-building method for this piece to echo both the waves and ripples of the ocean and the corresponding give and take of the sand and ocean floor. The jagged ridges of the vessel are meant to mirror the sometimes dangerous coral rock which form the essence of our land mass and which itself is a gift from the ocean’s depths. This piece is meant to be representative of our need to accept and welcome change and to embrace a willingness to adapt in the face of frequently shifting circumstances that we encounter as individuals and as a nation. 

"Tribal Song" hand built and sculpted earthenware vessel. 

"Tribal Song" hand built and sculpted earthenware vessel. 

“Tribal Song” pays homage to the indigenous people who called our shores home. What does is it mean to be a forgotten people? To be overtaken by the tides of change? Should we, the new caretakers of these islands, be showing more respect and appreciation for the legacy of the first inhabitants? Are there lessons to be learnt?  Inside, the bowl is a clean slate of white, waiting to be filled with a new future. Outside, holding our collective future together, is the past…the natural red earthenware of this vessel is glazed with barely a whisper of blue remaining. The ocean, which was once their source of sustenance, had unexpectedly become the bringer of death. What was once a vibrant culture in tune with its liquid borders, has been stripped down to but an echo of its former self. Like the intimate song of the shell which - even when pressed close to our ear - only gives a haunting hint of the melody within, the monochromatic curls, textures and shell-like swirls on this vessel are only fragments of the full tribal song that once was.

"Blooming Orchids"

 Visit 143 Pottery at "Blooming Orchids" to be held at the Pelican Bay Hotel, Saturday, November 30th.

I will have a booth at the Blooming Orchids show on November 30th.  Hope to see you there! From the Blooming Orchids Facebook page:

This year’s event will once again be held at the Pelican Bay Resort on November 30th, 2013. Blooming Orchids is a stylish affair that will highlight over 20 female entrepreneurs who will get a chance to showcase their crafts and sell their products to the wider Bahamian audience. This event will also provide a new entertaining atmosphere for social networking and culture open to the entire Grand Bahama public. This year we will partner with Lupus Bahamas in order to bring a greater awareness to the Bahamian Public on Lupus awareness, as well as financially support this organization by donating partial proceeds from Blooming Orchids to this budding organization. 

Through this event we hope to stimulate support for women entrepreneurs, and provide the wider community with the inside scoop on the latest and hottest brands and products available on the island of Freeport brought to you by female entrepreneurs. 

Blooming Orchids promises to once again be an unforgettable experience, so make sure to “like” our page and stay tuned for all of the exciting updates!
