The COVID clay diary is a 90-day exploration of the personal, social and cultural effects of the developing situation. Each day a clay vessel was made which responded to the events of the day.

Each piece is non-functional, a standalone sculpture or object which tells an individual story of the day. Together they explore the progression of an unpredictable and precarious time which is experienced both personally and collectively.
