ARTIST STATEMENT
Period pieces. Clay buildings document various architectural styles of past and present. Timepieces. Clay canvases record specific light rays complemented with shadows.
The concept for current works combines several art disciplines. An architectural model is designed with a dropped vanishing point, thus creating a bird's eye point-of-view. Forming the one-of-a-kind structure in earthenware allows for corrugated tin roofs, fluted columns, and textured shingles. Once bisque-fired in a kiln the sculpture becomes a three-dimensional painting.
Scaled as a miniature replica the piece addresses a building's existence and longevity. Each is fragile - each a subject of time.
