Cultivating Conversations

Cultivating Conversations

by Lori Phillips

May 5 - 30, 2014

I draw inspiration for my work from forms and texture found in the natural world; microscopic organisms, unusually shaped or textured seeds and pods, fungi, lichens, and carnivorous plants. I’m excited by the mystery of what might be inside something such as a large growing pod when cracked open. Rather than recreate these objects, I use their unique textures and forms to create an ambiguous anatomy of my own invention. I want to create that same excitement and curiosity in the viewer that I myself have when exploring the environment around me. My functional work has grown very sculptural, and I have been exploring the idea of drinking vessels that cannot sit on their own, but must rest in their base. This is meant to keep the two people drinking from them in close proximity to one another, to encourage a more intimate conversational interaction between the two. – Lori Phillips
