My work explores concepts of energy – physical, metaphysical and spiritual. In this piece I merged two forms to represent the related existence of the physical and energetic worlds. The extruded ceramic tubes are a representation of the soul or essence that inhabits the human form. The reclaimed chair became a form to express the physical. The armchair cradles the tubes, embodying stillness, rest and contentment. Each tube represents a lifetime, its shape fluid and continuous. The repetition and stacking of the tubes alludes to reincarnation, or the continuity of soul.
