this small bowl holds something of Proust's philosophical ideas. During the early 20th century, Marcel Proust wrote novels and short stories about how we perceive love, art, memory, and time. During the lock downs of 2020, its become permissible to reflect and take pleasure in our surroundings. Being 'trapped' inside domestic situations has exposed, as Proust does, the beauty in the every day.
This small hand built bowl carries with it a silence and serenity that belies its size. Following its bumpy and uneven surface flies a scattering of blue birds. It is an interesting little shape to live with because the surface holds the ability to evoke memories which are changing and fleeting, while the shape itself stands firm and strong.
