Stella Arion, Fons et origo

Stella Arion, Fons et origo

33 x 30 x 34 cm, white porcelain, glazes, boro glass, copper (electroplating), 2021

Stella’s work questions our perception of ‘beauty’ and ‘ugly’, suggesting that like life and death, these are intrinsically linked. Beauty can be seen in nature, both in the most vivid expressions of exuberant life and equally in the process of dying and decay. Her ceramic works celebrate the intricacies of nature, encompassing sharpness and fragility, darkness and light, the grotesque and the sublime. Inner silence and meditation are important to her making process, and she hopes her works will offer reconnecting threads or provoke introspection. Stella is a self-taught, full-time sculptor working with porcelain, glass and metal, with a background in art direction and fashion styling.
