Material Presence

Porcelain, flux, CNC milled walnut, 2018

Installed in Y Lle Celf, National Eisteddfod of Wales 2018

Material Presence exists as a still life – a part cleared kitchen table made from walnut with a CNC milled surface, and the washing up made from a fine white porcelain. The intent of this work is to bring to the fore the intricacies of our everyday, to pay homage to the ordinary moments that punctuate our lives as they are lived. Through this focused attention on everyday domestic objects and an ordinary scene, the work also exists as a study of humanness; it is an endeavour to engage with the intangible and emotive aspects of life through material processes and form.
