Visions In Clay 2019
My sculptural works are often ambiguous forms that amplify texture and prod at the boundaries of what clay as a material can do. I like to bring into question materiality and process in the contrasting of lumpy goopy sometimes puffy textures against patterned colored clays cut and rolled into thin ribbon-like loops, so thin that they can split from the tension. There is an inherent fragility and vulnerability in ceramics. It is known to be breakable, though it can be stronger than you expect, a fitting metaphor for people in body and mind.
