On breathing


2016
Porcelain, stoneware


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.
