Visions In Clay 2020
Investigating the ordinary is a pervasive theme in my work. I use accessible images as I look to express universal experiences. In using common place objects, I am expressing personal meaning and my interest in shared stories. Balance and Perspective has a distressed surface to create a weathered look and imply the passage of time. The dog, the book, the pot and the box are all vessels able to hold something inside. These mundane objects are decidedly inelegant and arranged in a nonsensical stack that creates both instability, curiosity and a new point of view.
Balance and Perspective
This ceramic sculpture is hand built using slabs and coils of sculpture mix clay and fired to cone 5. The surface was developed with layers of underglazes and EZ strokes when it is green. Once bisque fired, a wash of blue glaze was painted on and sponged off for an antiqued surface. More layers were added to create a combination of dry, matt and gloss surfaces.
