Solo Exhibition: Avital Sheffer - Art Collector

Avital Sheffe, Tumulus VIII. Multiple-fired earthenware clay with fired prints, 53 x 49 x 22cm.

Clay – with its malleability and transformations, fragility and endurance – is both an elemental medium and a record-keeper of lived experience and culture. Its mysterious and sensual nature and the fact that it is literally grounded suggest a metaphor for human life.

My hand-formed vessels are clad with imagery retrieved and developed from ancient manuscripts that have defied the ravages of time and the impermanence of memory. 
They speak of a conversation between ancestry and the present.
