Glaze Ceramic Studio at The Cotton Mill (Map #7)
My work has a foundation in material and process. I am drawn to the color, texture, and feel of clay. Clay can be soft and record marks and movement of the maker while also transforming into a hard stone-like material vulnerable to cracks and breakage. The broken or fractured are often seen as flawed or damaged. In my work, I encourage and manipulate the material to accentuate these “flaws”. I believe that these visual elements give a sense of introspection to the viewers own personal experience in life.
