"I create ceramic functional beauty, sculptural work and installations that are greatly influenced by everyday objects and the traditions of Still Life. Exploring the relationship between familiarity and ambiguity, these silent objects look to find a voice within their frame. Inspired by the ability of the everyday to renew in us an act of knowledge, my groupings create new platforms for these objects to exist.
Striving to honor the silent bystanders of our day, the compositions allow objects to emerge from the shadows, posed and poised. There is a beauty found in the shapes and colors that compose the settings of our day. Within the soft and muted colors of the mundane, there is a silence. Through the silence, vivid colors and shapes emerge to create a disturbance among the stillness." - Juliana Rempel
