Dialog by Hanna Whitehead Demonstrates the Diversity of Repeated Forms

Looking at the pieces from Dialog by Hanna Whitehead, you might first take note of the apparent variety. It may then surprise you to realize that each one is more or less only subtly adapted from the forms of the others.

For the most part, just two shapes were repeated to create every item within this whimsical series of household objects from glazed stonewear slipclay. To give the collection a superficial diversity, the potter sculpted the cups into different sizes and dimensions. She also added handles and lids to the vessels to give them assorted functions and distinctive silhouettes. Designed to be appreciated subjectively by individual users, Dialog by Hanna Whitehead starts a conversation about people's connections with inanimate objects.
