Marisa Recchia - Artist Statement

These pots were produced in a spirit of resonance between old technology via ancient practices of firing pottery using the method of wood firing and new technology, a recently built low carbon footprint energy efficient smokeless wood kiln. They represent to me thoughts of reverence and respect for the past, whilst embracing the present moment and what presence has to offer.

Connections to ceremony, beauty in the movement of the potter’s wheel and the dance of the flame as the kiln is firing. I think about the idea of simplicity, honesty to form, and the space a form takes up, as well as the space around the form.
