With her departure in the tradition Turi has, all through her career, strived to develop the vessel as abstract form. The vessel as independent object, one might say.

Working in clay is to me, connected with many underlying cultural bound references, but also strongly connected to nature.

My recent works are inspired by surfaces and colours in nature, geological structures, patterns of landscapes, plants and all the numerous shapes nature can provide. Out of this, works with organic, flowing forms or edged shapes have emerged with expressive surfaces, with relief or fluted structures. Working with rhythm, volume, movement and texture, I am aiming to create an emotional perception and visual reading of natural phenomena.”2 tall tuber shape low res THP
