PROXY_Cups

 

A PROXY_Cup = A TRANSFER OF A LIFE FORM INTO A FUNCTIONAL VESSEL.

Each PROXY_Cup is made by ripping off one chunk of clay and forming it into a ball. That ball is pinched within my hands, forming a drinking cup. After the life form has been transferred, the PROXY_Cup goes into the kiln.

PROXY_Cup (JJ PEET). Porcelain. 4” x 3.5” x 3.5”. 2016.

Each PROXY_Cup is made strictly for barter.
 
I barter only for goods and services, and I like services much more than goods. Barter is an agreement of a life form to life form transaction. A location and time are set for the barter station, where the viewers come to the maker. The final transaction does not happen until the barter is fulfilled, at which point the viewer receives their PROXY_Cup.
