Vessel: The Space Between Breaths with Lake Sharp
Timed with the one year anniversary of her father's death and her 6 month anniversary as a mother, Lake Sharp will set up her ceramics wheel and other clay tools, as well as an altar for her father and daughter, who will also join her for a portion of the time. She will let the experiences of death and birth guide and shape a series of sculptural vessels, inviting anyone to join her at any time during the gallery hours, to share their own birth and death stories or to sit in quiet contemplation.
On Sunday, December 6, when the vessels are still unfired, she will apply a coat of colored slip and let the public carve into them while recalling their own stories. All are invited to come with their own experiences of birth and death, to carve into Lake's unfinished pieces, leaving a collection of indelible marks.
