Rose Schmits

Rose’s work uses Delftware ceramics to talk about contemporary ideas of ‘trans-ness’.

Artist’s statement

Rose’s work takes inspiration from the traditional Delftware ceramics from her birth city of Delft, the Netherlands. In her practice the pottery process becomes a metaphor for the trans experience of the changeability of bodies and identity. She turns one body -a ball of clay- into another: a vessel.  The often tendril-like pieces explore the malleability of bodies and express an ability to break with historical convention and expectation. Her work shows the beauty that can be found in a trans(formative) experience.
