Tina Psarianos’ ceramic practice focuses on the magnificent Vessel. The clay Vessel is to be revered as it has borne witness to humanity through epochs and across cultures and by sharing with humans, a mouth, belly, waist and a foot, it represents a sculptural expression and metaphor for feminity.
“Through the use of ancient coiling techniques, I transcend timelines; feeling both humbled and regenerated. Drawing inspiration from silhouettes of ancient ritual vessels, the “Soaring Voices” series of vessels features rhythmic and repeating loopy appendages which provide a visual focal point and result in a fusion of utilitarian and decorative functions. These little vessels are flamboyant and light hearted and I hear them sing joyfully with soaring voices as I hope they sing for you.”
