Life for Life

The ingredients for life; food, water, shelter, others of your kind.

Jennifer Berry tells a story of life created from the clay with a series of ceramic sculptures designed for colonization by organisms. Porcelain is inherently uninhabitable by nature of its hard, smoothness. Jennifer set out to change the physical properties of this clay, increasing porosity, surface area and texture. By using organic elements in the unfired clay bodies, the conditions for life can begin.
