The ancient language of ‘Woman as Vessel’
Felt – Pandora’s Pithos (2002) began my exploration of myth and archetypal form. It explores the ancient language of ‘Woman as Vessel’; that of fertility, protection, nourishment and death. Red Felt Vessel Dress is the making of a dream and embodies an experience of love, loss and rebellion.
Pithos is an ancient vessel used to store grain, and also served as a burial urn. The term Pandoras Pitho’s comes from Hesoid’s storytelling in Works and Days which describes the creation of the first woman.
