CLAY IN DAILY LIFE - Elevating the domestic to ritual
Objects from the artist’s hands to yours.
Simple beauty for a world awash in waste.
Galit Maxwell has been sitting down at a potter’s wheel on and off for twenty years, but right now she can’t seem to stop.
Everyday we touch and use objects, when they are made by hand from natural resources its elevates our daily tasks to ritual. People even say that their coffee tastes much better when you drink it from handmade mug.
Our domestic objects should be beautiful, we should cherish them. We live in a world where everything is mass-produced or plastic and so many objects are disposable. Not only are we clogging our oceans with plastic we have lost touch with the simple pleasure of raising a beautiful vessel to our lips or holding something that has been crafted with care by someone else’s hands.
