Historical Context:
“My pieces are essentially related to vessel making and containment…I find myself exploring relationships, embodiment and containment, important aspects of the personal. Often pieces are deliberately created to portray a veiling or a disguising. Many layers are added. Just as our personalities are multi-dimensional, and just as we need to peel away layers to discover the true essence of someone or something, these pieces reflect complexity. However, while peeling away layers can be a wonderful process of discovery, in reality these layers also serve as protection, in an attempt to be allusive or to hide. They cannot be peeled away very easily.” – Jo-Ann P. VanReeuwyk
