JERC

ARTIST BIO:
Jocelyn Reid is a ceramic and mixed media artist living and working in Calgary, Alberta. JERC is Reid's collection of functional porcelain wares, which are handmade with love in her garage studio.

ARTISTS STATEMENT:
Everyday life is negotiated by nuance. The objects that we surround ourselves with become synonymous with our daily routines, easily sinking into the hushed identity of a possession. My work intends to highlight the peaceful existence that so many objects inhabit. Using understated, sometimes unmannerly imagery, the functional wares that I create ask their viewers to inspect them closer, and to induce an appreciation of the little things: the hilarity of ordinariness, the audaciousness of the mundane, and the beauty of silence.
