Inheritance Vessels

Inheritance Vessels is an ongoing series of works meshing fiber arts with ceramics.

Embroidery traditions are often handed down through families in much the same way objects are inherited. These works are both objects to be passed down, and containers for that which has already been inherited.

To create each piece, ceramic 3D printing technology is used to emulate unraveling threads and woven forms in porcelain which are then filled with intricate hand embroidery and beadwork. The series also makes use of broken ceramics, allowing their interiors to bleed out beyond the edges of the vessel, pooling like spilled liquid.
