"I aspire to make vessels that quietly engage the viewer, inspire curiosity, and invite a sense of discovery. These are objects that ask one to slow down and to notice the subtleties of form, surface, and function. My intention is for these vessels to be used mindfully.
An assuredness of form is essential to this work. Curves, volume and proportion are balanced with restraint. Consideration of balance continues as pattern is balanced with unadorned surface, cool color with warm, and cup with saucer.
Inspired by nature, the luminosity of translucent porcelain, and openwork, I consider light as an active element as I compose form and pattern. The play of light and shadow, a lilting edge, a jewel-like pool of glaze collected in a shallow dip: these are treasures that reside on the periphery of our attention. I am engaged in bringing these outlying elements to the forefront.
I look to historical ceramics from many cultures for inspiration, and integrate elements of these works into my own as a celebration of our rich ceramic lineage.
With attention to detail, I hope to entice the viewer to linger in contemplation and reflection, developing an intimate relationship with the object. I believe that in discovery one finds presence and beauty." Autumn Cipala
