Description

Porcelain, Gold Luster, Twine

Begun in 2018 and revisited at the beginning of 2021, this new series incorporates sewing into Imbeau's ceramic practice, allowing for the exploration of different symbols and a way to merge two aspects of her practice: clay and fiber arts. The simple house forms represent ideas of shelter and anthropomorphisms, while each flower has a specific meaning: honeysuckle is a symbol of nostalgia, and white heather is a commonly used symbol of protection. Her decision to use flowers is not based solely on the historical use of flowers as a language, but also their temporal fragility balanced by their abundance, tenacity and beauty conceptually ties into ideas prevalent in her other work.
