JERC (Oct 21+22)
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.
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.
