This piece is autobiographical and is a sequel to Together 1.
In the piece Together 2 I bring two embryonal forms together. Together they take on a new shape, together they are a new whole. Creating this piece was transformative for me. Loneliness was transformed into something new, something that is good and pure and lighter.
To emphasize the purity, I made the piece out of pure porcelain clay, which turns a beautiful white when fired.
Working with porcelain is an intensive and time-consuming process. Porcelain is self-willed work with and requires patience and love. This fits in perfectly with the embryonal theme, as does the beautiful white colour.
