she doesn't let her panic attacks stop her. yes, she needs to pause and let herself calm down from them, but they don't ruin her for extended periods of time. she will take a nap, or listen to music. she washes her face with cool water. small things. distractions. just until she can manage her breathing, just until she can breathe without her demons breathing down her back.
Ceramic artist Jacob Raeder creates playful objects with interesting textures and surfaces. He is a succesfull graduate from the Rietveld Academy, and kickstarted his career after his final show with a GRA award and plenty of opportunities. His body of work consists of cups, vases, bowls and other objects. These strong autonomous pieces function both as everyday objects and as sculptures. His glazing techniques bring forward strangely skinned vessels, with a unique tactility factor.
High/Low - This photo is perfect. The shoe looks GIANT, but awesome. It's not so distracting that you can't understand what's going on. To me, it could be a clever fashion ad for the shoe, in a way. I also love the fact that it is in black and white because I think the contrast works in its favor. The shoe definitely looks larger than life and makes the viewer feel small.
