Artist’s statement:

"The 13 Blue Vents obliquely reference industrial ceramics with some unknown or long-lost function or purpose. They also encompass the ideas of science fiction cinema and the concept of the danger or threat that could be behind seemingly benign or innocuous objects. Are they a way in or a way out?

The pieces are to be displayed on a wall. By changing the camera angle, the horizontal becomes the vertical.

Gravity is redefined."

The vents were wheel thrown using a white firing clay and then the grooves were turned when the pieces had become dry leather hard. The pieces were bisque fired to 1000°C and then spray-glazed matt blue and fired to 1220°C.
