Description

Ceramic picture, featuring original poetry. Black slip with glazed sections. Poetry applied with a slip pen.

29.5cm square

This picture uses black slip speckled with white and yellows to form a night sky, into which a red glazed star is centred. Michaela has then used a different kind of lettering that we usually use to circle a poem around the star that the ‘typeface’ kind that we usually use.

The poem used was written for an exhibtition, etitled ‘Where the streams come from’ which was an exploration of the great cycle of life that holds all things. The whole poem is below;

 

I am

 

I am bird, I am wind

I am scaled, I am skinned

I am soil, I am stone

I am flesh, I am bone

I am ebb, I am flow

I am stream, I am snow

I am all of these things

And I am nothing

 

I am love, I am light

I am morning, I am night

I am atom, I am star

I am close, I am far

I am start, I am end

I am stranger, I am friend

I am all of these things

And I am nothing

 

I am silence, I am song

I am right, I am wrong

I am sea, I am shore

I am less, I am more

I am young, I am old

I am iron, I am gold

I am all of these things

And I am nothing
