Twisted Coils is a pairing of glazed ceramic vessels which expand upon the basic technique of coiling. Key to beginners’ clay hand-building, coiling is now often used as a meditative tool within my practice as I consider the trials and tribulations of creating work. The repetitive gesture of rolling clay into coils has become second nature, and the method itself arises within my practice almost inherently, seemingly fragmented with each iteration. In this playful body of work, each long clay tube of varying width is entwined with another, entangled and stacked. Ultimately the stability of the object depends on the placement of each piece, rendering the outcome unique.
