“Hoops” Ceramic Sculptures by Claire Partington
I’ve been reading a bit a fashion history of late. We all fall victim to trends at some time or another, but it is hard to imagine the hoop skirt will ever be back. I’m good with that.
Ceramicist Claire Partington breaks the mold with these curious forms.

Love all of these…so very cool
It’s all relative… Perception is reality… Did you know that children are erroneously reported to have one third the peripheral vision as that of adults? Huh? It’s not about the vision or the brain power, it’s about the brain’s use of stored experience to interpolate and extrapolate reality. What? Yes. Although children receive normal sensory inputs children do not process what they see and hear as well as do adults. Their lack of experience causes perceptual difficulties resulting in uncertain reactions when confronted with situations which are high in complexity and/or high in deviation from what they have in their stored experience. These perceptual difficulties are further increased when the time of exposure to such sensory stimulants is shortened. As a human being, I am intently set on bridging this gap between me and my most learned adult peers by gathering as many and as varied experiences as possible.
Oooooo! I’m so glad you posted these! Claire Partington is fantastic. Her work is inventive, new and simultaneously praises forms that we know and love. What a delight!
I’m good with that, too. 🙂 Interesting images/sculpture ! Love the golden skull one.
