Attitudes, Platitudes & Gratitude – Porcelain & Clay Exhibition by Cara MacCallum-Hills
Clay is an extension of my being, I cannot imagine my life without it. I am constantly evaluating things I see, people I engage with, paths I walk along, a smile, the fold in an armpit, or the angle of their foot, committing these small details to memory for a future work. I use clay to express my emotions, to delve into my psyche and explore social and communal emotions of self. I have developed a range of works that co-exist with my love of aromatherapy and all things smelly! This range reflects the above explorations with a functional range of soap dishes, incense and oil burners.
