Latika Jain: Inner Core

What lies within the inner most depth of our being seeks to be acknowledged, seeks to be discovered.  The core of our existence is the sum total of our experience inlaid by our thoughts and actions. I like to think that I work from those inner reaches of my mind, where time ceases and true peace resides. Working with clay gives me that opportunity to express ideas through simple forms. My goal is to create forms that are sculptural and functional as objects intended to be placed within the house.
I throw and alter forms maintaining the vessel, while investigating line, form and structure. Sometimes abandoning function completely. I am intrigued by the relationship between utility and beauty, aesthetic considerations and functional concerns. 
Core conclusions that the function of objects can simply be visual joy.
