"Seams" Sculpture by Roshni Senapati
These hand crafted ceramic sculptures by Brisbane artist Roshni Senapati explore the idea of memory, cultural connection and family history. Seams feature two materials, porcelain and repurposed silk threads which are drawn from textiles worn or used by her mother. In each knotted thread resides a story. It is rich in memories of people and place and opens conversations about family gatherings and shared times, about rituals and practices. The gold seam captures a moment in time and anchors memories to the vessel wall. The porcelain vessels reflect the colour and feel of silk and serve as memory keepers, a powerful holding space of ancestral history and cultural tradition.
Seams truly is a unique art piece - exploring ideas not only through the form and colour of the porcelain vessel, but also with the thread that is knotted and stitched into its walls. Before entering the kiln, Roshni determines the number of holes required for the seam which are carefully pierced into the unfired porcelain. Studying each piece, Roshni needs to "see" the way each thread will sit long before using it as it is difficult to add a hole once each vessel has been fired.
