Apostel & Muse
A collection of hand-built ceramic lights resembling embracing figures.
The intertwined entities meet where darkness and light come together in an embrace of structure and shadows. Inspired by the human desire to find a partner with whom you can share intimacy, love and connection. In the romantic sense, we are seeking a soulmate to share the burden of life with. But cultural and societal changes cast a shadow on these traditional ideas. Individuation leaves us searching to redefine relationships, favouring freedom of options over commitment. Relationships have become more volatile and transactional. This new collection is an ode to my muses and apostles who have brought love, support, guidance and inspiration into my life. Reminding me to embrace and appreciate the connections I have, and those which I have lost throughout my life.
