The Babushka or Matryoshka traditionally shows a woman containing many smaller people like children inside. I like the idea of using the same symbolism to show the idea of many people within a person, or the many different sides of a person. The happy, sad, dark and light . The many layers we contain.
The object is slip cast and modeled in white earthenware.

A mixture of slip cast ceramic anatomical hearts with crumpled letters. I liked these forms and combined them in this piece entitled ‘Reading between the Lines’. They tell a story. I like the fact that it may be a different story for every individual and not one of them is right or wrong.
