Dawn Hajittofi

The theme of my work is primarily about hope in the face of adversity.  Influenced by my involvement in counselling and pastoral care, it is also a cathartic journey to understand and process my own history.

Each vessel represents a ‘life story’ and embodies the scars and marks of our struggles yet shows the hope and possibility of recovery. The abstract marks and decoration symbolise the significant events we encounter and acknowledge the lasting impact they have.

Thrown and altered, marked with various indentations and additions, the surface is decorated using slips, oxides and underglazes with a randomly applied glaze.
