Palleson notes "In this new series of work I have sought to recognise my role as a maker and address the craft heritage of my materials ... I view this series as collaborations between myself and these anonymous makers/knitters, to preserve the object but also the sentiment or act of love, boredom, duty or concern that created them."
Not afraid of exploring the notion of sentiment, Save For Best dives in unashamedly. Palleson's ceramic replicates (and in many cases literally entombs) the items that have gained her attention. It is a meditative tribute to everyday makers.
