Connections- Clay and Textiles
This is a stoneware bowl with a crochet cover by Natalia Gamez. I find it very interesting in its connections between the two material and the potential this has to be taken further. By putting holes in the bowl the textile can be threaded into the form. However, the textile and clay don't seem to be connected enough to create a consistent piece. Specifically the the form reads as a ceramic bowl with a textile top. These two materials could be more integrated which would make for a more interesting piece.
