“My work is concerned with the typology of the vessel. I create intimate, small-scale ceramic pieces that are functional, sculptural, or that blur these boundaries by having the capacity to exist in either state. Architecture, oppositional pairing, and intricacies of the natural environment inform many of my works. In my practice I am deeply involved in responding to the materials I work with. I am intrigued by the suggestions, distortions and transformations that unleash themselves in the ceramic process, and embrace the melding of them with my own trajectories. In this way my works are an intimate dialogue between, and expression of, the maker and the material itself.” Miranda La Fleur, 2016.
