Known for her book illustration, Judith Ernst also uses clay as a medium for artistic and spiritual expression. Starting from the vessel form, with its inside and outside and its traditional associations with archetypes such as creation, transformation, the body as a vessel for the soul, and fertility, she specializes in one-of-a-kind art pieces that evoke the natural world and its metaphysical reality.
Pieces that create a bio-geometry, a Jacob's Ladder leading not just up, but into a mysterious interior.
Featuring water both inside and outside, becoming metaphorically the Water of Life and the Infinite Ocean, symbolizing the continuum between creation and transcendence.
