I’ve worked and lived with my characters for a long time. Until a year and a half ago they were inhabiting 2 dimensional surfaces, mostly paper and canvas. As you can see, they’re now populating an undulating ceramic form. It’s a different kind of ride; fits and starts, pauses, and near stops. It’s as if they become part of their own topography when I scratch the drawn lines into the surface of the clay.
The forms are the challenge now. Where do they come from? In what ways do they serve the figures? How can I continue the sculptural search and ensure the vessel’s function as well?
Stay tuned…there will be more!
