EMILY MYERS - MIRROR AND REFLECT
Rabley Drawing Centre
 
Emily Myers Ceramics
 

A collection of ceramic vessels in response to the work of Nana Shiomi. Emily Myers’ forms and surface decoration mirror and reflect Shiomi’s dualistic principals. Pairs of pots lean and invert as if in conversation. The surface of the clay is incised with converging lines, playing with perspective illusions and giving architectural poise to the pieces.
