Stitch Along Perforations

Ceramics, Thread

2017

I think about the memories embedded in our muscles and bones whenever I feel lost and displaced. The body remembers old habits and movements, even when the conscious mind does not. I made this work in fragments over two years when I relocated to a new city without knowing anyone. The act of replicating familiar shapes from memory is comforting, and in the process I created a memento of the vessel I reside in.
