Summary Earth, water, wind and fire are the intrinsic elements which form the nucleus of life. These essential ingredients are fundamental to humankind as they are in making of pottery. In search for a complete scientific, philosophical or religious understanding, the melding and the transformation of the elements challenges thought and can conjure up abstract imagery. The focus of this paper is to provide an insight into the concept and the mystery surrounding the earthern substance, the vessel and the allegorical relationship that is shared with humankind. The connection between earth, the vessel and humankind involves a journey to rediscover our universal origins. I will expound the unifying conceptual links through my ceramics and an accompanying disseration.
