I feel more confident in the ideas I want to explore and the aesthetic they are taking on. Last semester I felt like the work I produced wasn't truly mine, this time I feel the exact opposite. I work in clay for it's inherent materialism. I am interested in the way things come to be, how an object is created and in turn deteriorates, they way dissimilar objects coexist. I draw inspiration from geology, my personal relationships with the world around me. I strive to create objects that reveal evidence of their origin.
I spent quite a bit of time this past weekend taking more professional images of my work (with a large dose of assistance from my always reliable assistant, Geoffrey Gavett). While they still need some editing here is a glimpse of some final products from this past semester.
