Lydia Grey, a ceramic artist, lives in a small town in the middle of a beautiful wild forest. She makes work that is most often very earthy: women’s bodies, animals, organic shapes, thoughtful faces.  Occasionally she works with other themes. The yellow piece below, for example, – in which a woman is balancing a laptop on her belly:

At first I didn’t like that she was mixing technology and clay, technology and nature, technology and body. But, more than anything else this pot makes me reflect on the (integral) nature of technology in our lives. The soft gaze and full attention the woman brings to her laptop, looks familiar, and is unsettling.
