Adjustment and Recovery

by Kelly Johnston


“These small vases were made following radiotherapy and completion of treatment. They were my thoughts on how much my body had changed through loss of weight, loss of muscle tone, scars, raw skin, the mutilation of surgery. Where once there were curves and softness, now there was hard edges. They are decorated with mandalas and lotus flowers to symbolise new beginnings and how beauty can rise out of the mud.”
