(re)COIL v. – arrange or wind (something long and flexible) in a joined sequence of concentric circles or rings.
Coils have changed both subtly and drastically over time. They are a fundamental element in ceramics and have grown with the evolving ceramic culture. When placing individual objects Christine is considering how people approach day-to-day interactions with objects.
