Machines manufacture perfection- the stark white, flawless atmosphere created by mechanics and mathematics- a realm where the soul has been lost. We now live in a world where our aesthetics have adapted to a fabricated perfection, stunting the bud of creativity that is attempting to blossom.
Through my work, I seek to unveil perfection through imperfection, which is where Truth lies. Nature, being the most delicate yet enduring example of this paradox, is where through the rough surfaces and shattered angles, we are reunited with ourselves.
Essarai Ceramics opens a door for whimsy, wonder and the curiosities of our childhood to reenter and reinspire, enriching our lives through reminders that decorate your home. Each piece is handcrafted with water, clay, hands and heart; each piece of wood, crystal or notch carved and strategically placed by Fate, where all things eventually fall into place.
The name Essarai comes from a song by the group, Cantoma. It captures the beauty and serenity I seek to express through each piece.
