Aleisa Miksad

Stoneware, mesh, thread, plywood
128cm H x 85cm W x 8cm D

Aleisa Miksad’s Fur, is a sculpture of a hanging animal pelt is a study of the relationship between humans and animals, and how the Dionysian worshipers wore animal pelts as a symbol of their connection to the natural world. The thousands of hand-rolled stoneware spikes that cover the surface of the sculpture add a sense of aggression and violence, creating a dichotomy between the beauty and brutality of nature.

Evoking early coil pots (a traditional method of building ceramic vessels, made by building up sides of pots with successive ropes of clay in a circular pattern) Aleisa coil-builds her vessels from stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. The form emerges slowly over the course of a few days as she works. Adornments such as spiked collars, lips and ruffled bottoms are added once the vessel is completed. The forms are then bisque fired and sometimes under glazed before the final firing.
