Reliquaries

 

I made these reliquaries for commonplace use. I hope their owners put them on a mantle or table and place within them small tokens from a loved one, a found feather, a stone from a special place, a lock of hair, or really anything they wish to find remembrance in. They are vessels devoted to loss and validating what has been lost.

These were all hand sculpted and hand painted with various glazes and underglazes in the summer of 2017.
