Alix Davis: Sculptural Vase titled Dwell(ing), awarded the Toronto Potters Award of Merit


The sculptural vase Alix created is based on architectural elements including fragmented staircases, metal-like containers, rope and book structure that are attached and growing out of the form. The juxtaposition of these elements with the body below the vessel’s neck represents the instability of the materially constructed world and emotional isolation. She employs several techniques including throwing, coiling, press moulding, slab and altering.  Hand crafted each will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight.  Retail Feature: Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition titled FLUX Dwelling was juried by Denis Longchamps (Executive Director and Chief Curator of The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery) and Susan Low-Beer (Award Winning Ceramic Artist).  Awarded the Toronto Potters Award of Merit: presented to Alix Davis for her vase entitled Dwell(ing)
