Hand built from a single piece of stoneware clay, stretched to its limits before shrinking back into a ballet position known as Révérence (a curtsy or bow, but also an important element of ballet culture). Glazed with a light spray of blue and single fired. This work is part of Rachel’s delicate Ballet series, exploring the limits, textures, and forms of clay.

Rachel Kinbar is an artist, writer, thinker, gardener, mother, auntie. Her work utilizes tiny details, slow processes, repetition, intuition, and healing modalities. Ceramic pieces investigate the ability of organic matter to transmit energy and trigger a quiet emotional reaction. Larger works and installations serve as data visualizations, toe dippings, or deep dives into personal and communal history. All of this work asks the viewer to really look, really see, and really engage.
