Bettina Willner's ceramics "Twisted", and "Tangled" are dreams of the earth and Atlantis, perfectly realised in these material evocations. When the viewer approaches these sculptures, they can see feel a presence of the lost city. She has produced in her kiln, and in her imagination, these objects of nostalgia, rising vertically from the seas to join the Earth's sky. Jewel like life forms rest where the waves have lulled them, evoking a sublime serenity. Sedimentary colours and textures are invoked in the vertigo towers, while at the same igneous iridescent glazes accumulate in the fresh ceramics giving space and form to irresistible tangibility.
