The Lockdown Vases are a large art project I created to deal with the overwhelm of the Corona pandemic and the lockdown in Ireland.

For 100 consecutive days, I fashioned a vase a day, using different techniques, experimenting with various clays and colours, and exploring new shapes and designs.

 

Some of the vases reflect experiences I’ve had during that time, others mirror news items broadcast throughout the pandemic.

 

As a collection, the Lockdown Vases represent my three-dimensional pandemic journal; each vase is date-stamped with its day of creation, starting with the first vase on the 26th March 2020, and finishing with the last one on the 3rd July.
