Mathematical and Scientific Markings on Rustic Pottery by Laura C. Hewitt

Designed in rural Alaska, artist Laura C. Hewitts rustic, handmade pottery is influenced by the magic found within the mundane, nature and its pragmatic obscurity. Embossed with typographical mappings of the universe, mathematical formulas, and technological charts, Hewitt’s work pays homage to the dichotomy of the union between science and art.

Adorned with patterns, which include alpha numeric marks from vintage machinist punches and inlaid drawings reminiscent of maps, circuit board, astronomy and flow charts running into deeply carved organic river markings, each piece is unique.

Chronicling binary numbers, the distance from sun, the solar year and equatorial diameter of all planets, Ohm’s law, and the mapping of a circuit board among other technical formulas, each creation is Wheel thrown and hand carved. The vintage manual typewriter keys markings add a rustic and agrarian sensibility, which create a profound juxtaposition with the numerical values of technology in Hewitt’s pottery. You can find her entire collection in her Etsy shop.

These artefacts have all been excavated from former Medieval houses in the Malmö area. Judging by the beautifully carved decorations, an item like this is believed to have been presented as a gift to the bride-to-be.
