Is part of the collective - The Girls.
(One of ten pieces in this specific collection)
Each ceramic piece can be experienced as an individual work of art,
making a statement on their own
OR a united front.
Sophia meaning wisdom.
Wisdom - to have insight, good sense and judgement.
“We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world. The lives that you admire, the attitudes that seem noble to you, have not been shaped by a paterfamilias or a schoolmaster, they have sprung from very different beginnings, having been influenced by evil or commonplace that prevailed round them. They represent a struggle and a victory.”
For Sophia I chose to make a small box - a receptacle - to discover something inside.
Small pieces with the word wisdom written on it, are found inside the box.
A journey of discovery.
Also, something precious to hold on to.
