It envelops the interior on all sides, distinguishes, and separates it from the outside. It retains its shape while the integrity of its structure dissolves from consideration with the intention of naming its contents. It gives meaning to a consolidation of space. This space is the walls of the house that become the home. It is the cardboard box that holds a collection of books. It is the plastic bottle that is only kept as water remains inside. It is the skin that identifies a human. Many vessels have patterns decorating their exteriors. These patterns tell a story through symbols and figurative imagery. The imagery on the vessel transcends its objectivity and magnifies the story it tells. The patterns tell a story that never ends; a narrative without a conclusion or resolution. All the while, the surface quality of the container changes over time. It will patina and show signs of wear and age.
