Maya Selway – Kishu Vase

Artist Name:  Maya Selway
Title:  Kishu Vase
Details:  circa 2012 – Oxidized copper

Why It’s Notable:  We get so accustomed to thinking of things as the way we know them (vases hold liquid).  When we challenge the way we think about things, it opens up new possibilities.  Maya Selway has not only challenged the definition of a vase, but also what a finished piece should look like.  In this case, the end product looks like nothing more than an incomplete conceptual sketch.

This is the third slide from my PechaKucha presentation.
