Mindy Horn, Contessa, USA, 2016

Mindy Horn’s non-functional vessels, purposely thrown off center, appear to have grown and weathered organically. The surfaces of the vessels, crusty or cracked, emphasize their crooked, uneven forms. While their appearance seems to contradict porcelain’s typical convention of perfection, it is the material’s strength and elasticity that allows Horn to give each vessel its uniqueness. The extensive alteration of surface texture and the addition of hand built elements result in vessels that speak about time and how things grow beyond their beginnings.

In Horn’s hands the imperfect becomes more significant than the perfect, asking the viewer to examine what is common in all of us and to celebrate the complexity of our differences.
