'I Own You, You Owe me' is an exploration of relationships
I_own_you.jpg
Just because I love you, does that mean I own you?
Does it mean you owe me?
what glue holds us together?
how does control play a key role?

how one weakens, strengthens, affects the other,
the complexity and chemistry,
our differing reactions under the same circumstances.

The piece is made with porcelain and wire wool.
In its raw state porcelain is delicate and fragile.
The wire wool is stiff and strong, binding the unfired porcelain sculpture together.
When the sculpture is fired, their properties totally change. The wire crumbles and disintegrates. The soft, malleable porcelain solidifies, becomes the strength and stability in the sculpture.

And yet the fragmented metal weakens the porcelain.
In the heat of the moment they've swapped roles .
When the liquid glaze, the third element in the relationship, is added
it becomes the main solidifying and unifying element.

A Symbiosis. Transformation in the heat of the moment.
