This sculpture is a comment on the female body being a vessel for new life. This sculpture is of a feminine form, though it looks functional (in the craft sense) because it is a vessel with a lid. The form is adorned with female body parts as the ornament – the breasts! So the overall piece is to be handled as an art object. It could also be conceived as sexy pottery, with her glaze dripping down her naked body! This the first creation I made with breasts, a theme which runs through a few pieces. I feel it was about me exercising the issue of not having been breast fed.
