Josefina Isaza - Josefina Isaza Ceramics
As a ceramicist, I am constantly aware of the way that my body moves. Every move I make is a decision that will lead to a transformation in the clay that I work with. I find this has meditative qualities for me, which in turn is conveyed in the work.
Clay is a medium that allows me to re-gain control of my own body and mind as I find that today’s society, people are increasingly becoming more detached from their body through the constant use of technology and overstimulation. Through the visibly risky forms, intricate and time-consuming drawings on my pots and the large, precarious wall pieces, I wish to be able to remind people of their own spatial awareness.
