A Field Trip Past the Oil Rigs
7 x 6 x 5
Porcelain with glaze, handbuilt, twice fired, oxidation kiln.
I made this work when I started questioning how to effectively let material dictate its own form. I developed a glaze that works similarly to expansion foam to allow the material more agency in addition to a highly fluxed colored clay that I had been using to glue pre-fired pieces together. The textural elements of this work remind me of a field trip I took growing up.
