Pottery is a reflection of ourselves and how we move about our daily routines and rituals; it is a reflection of how we interact with others as part of these rituals, and for this reason pottery should be observed.
Nowhere Fast is a series of ceramic functional ware detailing our fast-paced lifestyles and how we cope through vice and social interaction.
Narratives are presented on familiar domestic objects while providing an opportunity for celebration of our everyday rituals through the tactile experience of the handmade.
Mikaela Corney is an aspiring studio potter from Calgary, Alberta.
She is interested in creating diversely functional small-batch objects for the home while exploring the chaos of internal discourse and the consequences and failures of human interaction.
