Each Piece is an individual creation, completely hand built by Abbi, and a survivor of a long line of complex building and drying processes, grinding, multiple layers of glazing, and multiple firings.*
These vessels are inspired by the fleeting organic moments we would wish to freeze in time. They are also a reminder for all of us to handle and respect our ecosystem as delicately as we would paper thin clay on pin-point, while keeping in mind that we have more in common with the amoeba than the micro-chip.
*Each work is an individual creation; all hand made, no molds or patterns. Thus, please to not expect the pieces you receive are exactly like those on this website, but rather its own unique piece.
