PUTI VASE SERIES This series of ceramic vases takes the form of a short and medium vase, painted with wild flowers on the surface. There is a figure of a woman who hugs/leans in the middle of the upper part of the vase. Although there are some other details in the biggest vase, the majority of these vases are woman and flowers. Initially, this woman was intended to represent myself. However, I decided that she can represent everyone and anyone who doesn’t want to be separated from things that they enjoy and like. Clingy, or in Indonesian “lekat”, is a revelation/insight that inspired this series. Many internal factors triggered that insight, such as emotional instability, lack of confidence, and fear of being alone. Personally, I think that lots of people can relate to my situation. The wild flowers on this vase can be seen as something valuable and precious, it could be another person or living things, could be inanimate objects, even some sense of purpose. Whatever that is, that precious things exist right here and now, in the present. Some flowers I painted on this vase are real flowers that truly exist—like daisies, passion flowers, baby’s breath—and some are based on my imagination. Somehow I always felt that clinginess is also like that, sometimes it’s real, sometimes it’s just in our mind. Puti. Bandung, 5 April 2018 Puti. Bali, December 3 2018 - Sekarputi Sidhiawati 2020 Hand throwing stoneware, engobe, glaze, and gold lustre | 28x17x17 cm
