June Schwarcz is 97 years old and still enameling today..
I feel quite drawn to work like this, where the more you seek the more details you find..
I once had a conversation with one of my teachers where he asked me why I kept making boxes.. for some reason I am drawn to boxes and hollow structures as well, we decided there was some sort of “protecting” aspect about it.. and when I see her vessels I get just that, I think her subtlety shows through, these are not to be used in a common form, they were made to hold something deeper… they are to be admired and loved as the beautiful object they are..
This video features her talking about her work, it is so inspiring to see someone so fulfilled and with a life time of memories through making..
Oh..well, did I tell you I really like her work? 🙂
