Four Thousand Two Hundred and Ten
Four Thousand Two Hundred and Ten attempts to bridge the gap between memories and time, referring to the number of days between my mothers passing and the opening of The Narrative Knot.
“Ashley Fiona enacts a delicate memento mandala of one hundred and forty two tiny pinched pots. Their making signifies the accumulation of days as the touch of her fingertips on the white porcelain reflects a past and projects a future foretold in the present. Peer closer to see residues of many spices; a pinch of chilli, garlic, oregano and coriander. Inhale nuances of aromas that remain and remind of recipes once cooked.” – Toni Warburton, The Journal of Australian Ceramics, issue 51/2, web article review; The Narrative Knot, stories in ceramics.
