Blue Girl Charm- Pendant
In electrical and mechanical trades and manufacturing, each half of a pair of mating connectors or fasteners is conventionally assigned gendered designation of male or female. A power cord on an appliance terminates in a male plug. In this work, an impression of a male plug on Kharmohreh creates a female icon for the pendant.
These charms are based on an ancient non-clay ceramic process dating back around 5500 years. In Mesopotamian cultures this method was originally used to make beads and small amulets. The beads were thought to ward off evil spirits and were seen as good luck charms or protectors. Unlike most glazed ceramic objects, these are self-glazing due to their mineral composition, and there is an alchemical magic that unfolds in the kiln giving the charms exquisite shades of blue.
