Vessel 2005

from Cwm Cwareli series

Pamela Rawnsley (born 1952, Devon, England, UK)

This vessel comes from a series of forms inspired by boulders, their textured weathered surfaces telling of the continual passage of time. These ideas continue within my silverware which currently includes small vases, stoppered bottles, boxes and hollow-handled spoons. Occasionally jewellery is incorporated - a ring becomes the means to an open box, a detached lid forms a brooch. The same visual and technical threads run through all my work, and I like to blur the distinction between work to be worn, work to hold and work to use
