Rise Up

Rise Up

The world today seems increasingly turbulent and uncertain. While utilizing my clay work as a therapeutic healing tool, I created a series of vessels that give a voice back to the clay. I call them prediction pots. The Rise Up vessel speaks for the degradation of women and their continued pursuit of equality and justice. This has long been an important theme in my art. The women’s fists are uplifted. They are the ones to hold our leaders accountable or they will be “hung out to dry”. The fists are entwined with the symbolic black snake of the oil pipelines. It is corruption that will eventually eat away at politicians from the inside out. I painted each section of this jar as a call for those who feel impelled to rise up.” Virgil Ortiz
