Ceramic Vase VI - Ebitenyefa Baralaye



Through a process of hand building and mold making, Baralaye’s work explores translations of media and culture through a diasporic lens of craft. The stoneware, salt-fired vessels are a result of the artists own passage through the world, having lived in Nigeria, Antigua, and the United States, as well as a desire to investigate how the history of creating ceramic vessels has been used as an investigation of our own existence itself. Clay, then, becomes both complicit and complicated by Baralaye through a network of complex social histories and timelines, resulting in an aesthetic that blurs ideas of place or nationality in itself.

Stoneware, salt fired
