This last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Katherine Cox in the Dennis W. Dutzi gallery in her display of Domestic Implications. In her work she “investigates the vessels that once functioned within the parameters of longstanding pottery traditions”. This way she hopes to uncover how these items and imagery are relevant to a contemporary setting.
This dialogue is meant to represent the ideals of domestication and how it affects people. To Cox this is a reflection of societal pressure contributing to an individual’s mindset as to what is right and wrong. Through this dialogue she says she wants to change the narrative between people, one different from the ideas of femininity created in the past.
