Vessel Art Story


It’s Antoinette Ferwerda and I’d like to share with you my Vessel art story, which is inspired by sculpture and human made objects, where a lump of clay might be fashioned and sculpted to form a utilitarian vessel.

The Vessel is something we would use each day and still find beauty in its imperfections, like the echo of a thumbprint or a wobbly edge if it is made by hand. 

So, as human beings, I also feel that we refer to ourselves as vessels sometimes and we reference filling our cup. 

So, I feel that all humans are connected to the Earth and the clay of something that is made of that, just like the Vessel is symbolic of life.
