The Process (2024)

This collage series focuses on artistic techniques and processes over the final pieces. We always see the final product, but this body of work aims to showcase development and exploration, which is an integral part of creation.

Photographs were taken of the experimental glaze and texture test samples of éphēlis in an oyster mudflat, as her work draws inspiration from nature’s forms. Hand-printed photos were then combined with darkroom test strips, blending ceramic and photography processes. Gold thread is used to collage everything together, drawing inspiration from the ceramic technique kintsugi.
