2018 On absence
2017 On composure
2016 On breathing
These pieces reflect my acquaintance with clay, and the process of understanding the skill required to tame the clay, uncentered body and mind.
I am fascinated by the punishing, steady speed of the wheel in contrast with the hesitant effort of hand, where all balance depends upon a consistent rhythm of breath.
To trace this compromise between wheel and hand, I embed small pieces of contrasting clay to the parent block of clay, resulting in lines that arcing and bowing in slow, imperfect articulation across the surface.
