Avital Sheffer

Notions of fecundity and containment intrinsic to the human form and the natural world animate the making of my ceramic vessels. The embodiment of utility, divinity and beauty in the vessel form is as ancient as the existence of human consciousness. Projected through mythology, language and lived experience, it is an endless source of inspiration, questioning and search.
I am engaged in a deeply rewarding process of oscillating in history. Every layer of clay, glaze and print applied, concealing and revealing, moving back yet simultaneously forward in time.
