Didem Mert

In Didem Mert's work, she makes connections between the utilitarian object and its counterparts; the user and/or the object’s environment.
Being the daughter of a woodworker, Didem was raised in a design-rich environment that has influenced who she is and her current body of ceramic work.  Geometry, texture, and the functionality of Mert's work emanates from this artistic environment.  Different textural surfaces are created in my work by using pinched marks juxtaposed between smooth, defined lines and edges.  Bright colors paired against a soft earthy color palette create high-contrast focal points in the work. Using simple geometry, she sgraffitos line-work into the pots to heighten the formal elements of design. The simple line-work on the pots showcases food in its presentation.  
Didem's work strives to bring forth a sense of tranquility in its minimalistic design, yet there is a sense of playfulness directed through the color pallete and pinched surfaces.
