Expressive form: Ceramics
As a medium, clay has its own sense of reality and mass. The ability to fold, tear, stretch and distort inherent in the malleability of clay has allowed me to create geometric forms which buckle under pressure. They evoke the surface textures that decay and erode during the destruction of the natural world through the devastating effects of man’s irresponsibility towards his environment. My intention was to create a sense of foreboding through the aesthetic order of the artwork; the ominous title suggests that all organic matter has been destroyed. My series of vessels express a state of flux and movement inspired by the cubist and futurists as well as post-modern architecture.
