Simone Bodmer Turner

ART Pottery Furniture USA 2022-10-14

Ceramicist Simone Bodmer-Turner lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Turner is slowly but surely building a world in white. She quickly became known for her looping, exaggerated jugs and vases with shapes vaguely reminiscent of traditional Meso-American carafes. But as she progressed, the forms became weirder, more amorphous. 

Simone’s initial draw to ceramics was based on the desire for a tactile and malleable experience and fascination with a material born of the earth itself. Leaving behind the pottery wheel in favor of hand building, her pieces are created using traditional methods of construction such as coils and slump molds.The works usually adopt neutral tones, and their shapes are both biological and architectural, and are inspired by organic movements found in the human body and nature. Each piece is handmade, and each piece is a unique expression.

Turner's works refer to ancient forms, deliberately showing the artist's hands. defect. She intends to arouse people's attention to ancient techniques through this slow and “of the body”way of working. Her pieces are soulful and poetic, imperfect with alluring idiosyncrasies. Their abstract, other-worldly silhouettes vaguely echo traditional vessels.

Simone ’s works have character,idiosyncrasies that refuse to be replicated: “I hand build because of the irregularities, indents, and fingerprints are evidence of clay’s partnership with the human hand to take form”, she explains. Her poetic relationship with this earthborn matter is evident in the shapes her works take as vessels and vases—homages to the role that clay has played throughout history. “I am moved by ancient forms that once held such a rudimentary and crucial role”, she explains, “keeping water cold, fermenting foods, cooking over an open flame, serving tea to honor your guests.” In creating pieces inspired by more traditional forms, Simone hopes that her work has the magic and ritual that such vessels once held.
