Breathing Life Into Clay:
The Magical Ceramics of Japneet Kaur

QUEEN WEST ART CRAWL

 

 

 




Already known for her ethereal paintings, Japneet Kaur has now turned to the world of clay, bringing to life a new and magical world of ceramics.

This weekend, her work is being exhibited at the Queen West Art Crawl in Toronto, Canada, on Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Here’s how Japneet describes her ceramic creations:
 
I admire the softness and tenacity of wet clay, it's ability to stretch, mold and adapt. I love that one can use pottery as a canvas to tell tales.

Fired pottery reminds me of delicate hearts that also have in them the ability to contain endless joys and songs.

My vessels are human in their imperfection. Many of them are wobbly, a few are lop-sided and all have a story to tell: a journey, an adventure, a memory to share.

They like to be cocooned in caring hands, contain in them the food that sustains us and they enjoy sitting around the table and basking in conversations.

There is art in every pore of Japneet Kaur, from her beautiful smile to the twinkle in her eye. One need only be in her presence. Her artwork, mashallah, the more you gaze at it the more it unfolds and reveals her. spirit.

Congratulations, Japneet! Beautiful work. Your art work is a journey in itself ... to be one with the clay, the paint, firing and glaze ... in order to tell us your stories! Beautifully executed. Keep it up.
