There is something ironic about taking a material like clay which is dense, opaque and ruled by gravity and then removing as much mass as possible, replacing it with light and creating forms that hover. It is addition by subtraction. The surface is coated with between 4 and 6 applications of a vitreous engobe. Light enters the surface of the work and refracts through the body of glaze.
The work changes according to the ambient light of the environment within which it resides. The forms that rest in the vessels are all shapes that we know, primarily rendered from geometric solids. By perforating them as intensely as I am able and covering them with a surface that at times can glow, it is my intention with this work to begin to dematerialize those forms perhaps to suggest the ethereal.
