The ‘Cupán Cré – Clay Cup’ project offers a contemporary re-imagining of the Irish mythological Vessel of Everlasting Abundance; a numinous symbol that resides in the deep roots of the Irish psyche. The project combines the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities. Comprised of a collection of 39 ceramic pots made from clay gathered from every county on the Island biome of Ireland: there is one pot for each county, one for each province, and one pot made from all of the clay's of Ireland combined. Re-imagining this vessel, offers a symbolic way of conceptualizing and celebrating our inter-relatedness with the wider world.
