In her practice, Turi considers the vessel as autonomous sculptural object. Working with clay, the classic natural timber, she underlines transition process from nature to culture. This very means is for the artist a starting point for further work. “We have an inherent understanding of beauty and shape evolved by thousands of years of visual impressions from our cultural history, but especially also from nature. I am aiming to create a visual and emotional reading of the objects, working with shape, rhythm, volume, movement and texture," Turi explains.
