Disposable Women
- A ceramic narrative about women who have no voice.


I have used the form of a disposable bleach bottle as not only does it have a feminine shape but it has been documented that some drink bleach to commit suicide. All the forms are the same but are wrapped or glazed to make each one unique. This makes them similar to women in different cultures and countries who are treated as disposable commodities.

 

The Aunties

In her book 'Shame' Jasvinder Sanghera writes about the local women (who are often called Auntie by the local children), gossiping outside the Gurdwara (their temple) about other local women. These women (symbolised in the bottle forms opposite) represent the gossiping women, and the burned bread board represents dangerous domestic ground.
