THE POWER OF TRANSFORMATION IN THE CERAMIC ART OF ESMA DEREBOY
As a young girl I was always fascinated with butterflies, specifically in the way that caterpillars magically transformed into beautiful winged creatures. Within the chrysalis there is a secretive process that changes a being from one shape to another. Something new and beautiful emerges. Akin to my girlish wonder with butterflies and their delicately crafted wings, Esma Dereboy’s ceramic art fills me with that same sense of fascination. Dereboy understands more than anyone else that within the process of transformation, there is so much potential for beauty.
