Alana Wilson's ceramics seem to have been created by the sedimentation of time. Their simple shapes and rough surfaces evoke the ruins of yesterday's world. They had survived the cataclysms of human history and, both fragile and powerful, are seeking their path in the world of today and tomorrow. The primary function of the container is never directly affirmed, maintaining a metaphorical use of form and material. The patent hand marks suggest a form of continuity with the long history of ceramic practices. Behind the apparent neutrality of these objects lies an embodied vision of the links between humans and their environment.
