Deeper Healing from Self-recreation in Art
Michelle Spiziri's art is characteristic of Abstract Expressionism. However, she has an uncanny ability to bring out unique and evocative imagery while revealing unexpected visual stories.
She is also exploring ceramic sculpture as a medium of extended expression.
Much like life and while digging deeper within ourselves, inside the nucleus of Michelle’s art there exists layers of complexities, discoveries, and synchronicities forming before the reveal of a finished work.
Michelle believes that the sometimes chaotic journey involves a chrysalis state of deconstruction in order to create something fresh and meaningful.

Each totem bowl is individually hand built using paper clay specifically for kiln firing. There are no molds. They may be similar, however, no two are alike.
The mugs stand approximately 3 inches high and wide. There are slight variations in size and color which add to the charm and the individuality of these one-of-a-kind pieces.
Each totem is unique with curious expressions and names crafted for connecting. Great for holding snacks, votives, jewelry, or whatever you please.
In Roman mythology, Janus, was the god of doors, gates, and transitions. Janus represented the middle ground between both concrete and abstract dualities such as life/death, beginning/end, youth/adulthood, rural/urban, war/peace, and barbarism/civilization.
All Janus totems are hand built, one of a kind, and wood kiln fired. All totems have two faces and subtle carvings within the body representing transitions, memories, and constant change.
Exploring the beauty in the imperfect. As a body-conscious society it can be a struggle to feel worthy of our outside appearance.
Acceptance of the self; self worth, and self love need to come from a deeper place within. Especially as we age, and see the body change.
In creating these dysmorphic vessels through scarring, scoring, texturing, layering of glaze, and stains, I’ve delved into a deeper intrigue of my own existential journey- from conception to my impending death.
I’ve found parallels that beauty exists from within the whole and not just the part - like clay, we are formed and molded as we move through different stages of growth both externally and internally.
Michelle's art work is extraordinary. Her work is soulful. She seems to connect to spaces that are only apparent when you take a second and a third look at her art. Her work is one of a kind.
