The Vessel

Abstract or Summary of Project

My project revolves around the notion of death, and the acknowledgement of the ephemerality of life. It is also by extension a celebration of living. The work centers around the concept and form of the vessel as a receptacle for both life and death, and the urn as a posthumous vessel for ourselves after the flesh vessel has expired. Furthermore, I would like to posit the idea of the personalization of the urn vessel, through form, size, colour and texture, such that, even in death, one can still possess an identity. Through a series of ceramic works handcrafted on the potter’s wheel, I aim to remind people of the finiteness of life, not to place them in despair, but instead to galvanise them to better cherish and make good their time.
