The vessels I created for Messmerizing are based conceptually on creating physical spaces in daily life to reflect on the unknown, drawing from nostalgia and the curiosity that surrounds something familiar but new.
The Hydra On The Lawn and Pool Party Vessels use imagery from my childhood, reimagined in the context of contemporary ceramics and combined with ancient mythology.
Their matte, textured and rocky forms are reminiscent of fossils, brightened with stylised colour choices. Created with the exhibition location of Eindhoven Station in mind and its activation through curious objects, I aim to spark a feeling of discovery or rediscovery in their forms.
About Elizabeth Lewis
She is interested in utilising materiality and the basis of vessel forms to examine how objects can reflect and contribute to a greater sense of wonder and connectedness with history.
