The idea of a slab

Image

Coiling walls instead of using slabs takes away the rigidity.
Trying to find other routes, I coiled a tall pot and opened it up.
Once open, each slice is like a vertical slab.

Artist Statement

Between a Time and a Place, 2013

This body of work investigates the relationship between drawing and making in ceramics, at a point of oscillation between the two and three dimensional. The objects that arise from exploring this territory of the in-between can be seen as multiple translations that allow lines to be reinvented and visual conversations to emerge.

The images used are based on personal memories of everyday objects and the emotions attached to them. Creating space for discovery and meandering, they evoke something belonging to the subtle and the felt and map a territory that is mysterious yet familiar, personal yet universal.
