Portfolio: Empty Vessels

Process works that investigate ways of modelling aspects of desire and consumption and the material states that may result.

The shape and scale of the work was determined by what could be encompassed within my arms. Earthy matter was moulded, wrapped, used, discarded. The remaining fragile, degraded shells bear the marks of what they contained, the substance that had determined their form. Beside them are long- handled implements.
