Pretty Plead by Jam Westwood 2023

Stoneware Incantation bowl in two pieces, with hand painted decoration

These pleas have been made to trap the devils of the patriarchy. They describe the underplayed physical, social, professional and domestic injustices that 21st century women experience daily. ‘Just Open a Window’ highlights some of the 60 identified physical and mental symptoms that woman of menopausal age go through, where ‘Tell me Again’ draws attention to the lived experience of toxic attitudes towards females of all ages and backgrounds. ‘A Pretty Plead’ recognises the burden of domestic anxiety that is mostly carried by women. Given their function to trap demons, this last bowl in two parts has potentially sinister implications.
