On the occasion of the exhibition, Principle of Equivalence, Kemper Museum commissioned capsule collections by six local artists inspired by the work and career of Virginia Jaramillo for the Museum Shop. Each artist drew inspiration from different aspects of Jaramillo's practice and created original works that respond in their own artistic voices.

About Veak Ceramics:
"Before new forms ever make it to the wheel, hours are spent dreaming. Once there, I am moved by the ebb and flow of listening and guiding. Each piece is unique. Each handle, knob, or spout is made with much thought and deliberation. Listening to the piece and what it is asking for is crucial. This method of working is used through the process of carving, glazing and firing the piece to its completion.
I make functional ware because I am interested in the human experience with art and food. Food being emotional, social and sensual. I strive to make work that engages the senses by its visual and textural delight. That it might bring a table of friends and family together for a meal and merge the human appetite for both nourishment and beauty.
My desire is that my work will speak to you as well. When you hold it, drink and eat out of it or glance at it in your space. I urge you to listen to the piece and what it may be telling you. My wish is that the process of the piece might continue for you as you take it into your hands and into your home."
