Chevron Plate - Black
Corinna Cowles' builds her tableware by hand with dyed clay inlaid into the surface. She uses this collage-like method to create colorful, patterned layers that emerge, overlap, and recede — it's similar to how she uses colors and found textiles in her paintings. Corinna's functional ceramics are meant to be used, reused, and enjoyed. They're just as happy displayed on the wall as they are being used to set the table.

About the Artist:
Corinna Cowles is a painter whose practice explores relationships: color and pattern, domestic architecture and the body, text and textile. The work takes shape in a playful space of mutable materials and methods — this allows for a variety of installations concerning painting, drawing, ceramics, and fibers. Her most recent explorations have been focused on ceramics.
Inspired by clothing and decorative patterns, the work often exists as a pocket, pillow, curtain, wallpaper, or drape, engaging the viewer with absurd dislocations and transformations. Through these transformations, her practice becomes expansive and porous as it relates to life, craft, sculpture, identity, and class.
