ABSTRACT EXPRESIONISM

 

Early in my ceramics career, while I had an obsessive fondness for the clay, I developed a deep aversion to glazing. This body of work is the outcome of that decade-long love/hate relationship. 

 

I had often abandoned glaze entirely, requiring the form and the inherent beauty of the clay to sustain the essence of the piece. But by developing colored slips, treating them like paints, and applying them in a painterly fashion, I have finally achieved the clay-centric aesthetic I had always sought.
